Team Lucy's Ladybug Jam is a family-friendly concert fundraiser to build support and awareness for pediatric cardiomyopathy. In memory of Lucy Blythe Farmer, help us fight cardiomyopathy and support the amazing kids and families who are coping with this terrible disease.
OCTOBER 12th, 2013 - 1-5 PM
Admission is free but a suggested donation of $25 per family would be greatly appreciated.
All proceeds from the fundraiser will be donated to the American Heart Association by Team Lucy.
Our daughter, Lucy Blythe Farmer, died much too young from dilated cardiomyopathy. A viral infection made her heart enlarged and weak. Though she seemed strong and happy, and though we began the long process of waiting for a transplant, Lucy suddenly died on Mother’s Day this year at the age of 15 months. We decided to do whatever we could to keep her memory alive, and to fight the disease that took her from us. There are too few options for kids with cardiomyopathy, and we want to do something to change that.
Lucy's favorite animal was the ladybug, so we named the concert Ladybug Jam in her honor.
Come see some great local acts for kids and grownups.
