I believe we have finally turned the corner in regard to becoming a viable resource for raising money for our mission. After 8 hard years with the help of our tremendous sponsors and volunteers I hope we have moved over the hump to consistent and fruitful gains in our fundraising campaign.
We have announced the full line up for the 8th Annual Stomp The Blues Festival to be held May 19, 2018. We are extremely excited to have been able to get these outstanding artists.
Our headliner for 2018 is Marc Broussard – www.marcbroussard.com His blend of Cajun Soul and Blues has him among the most sought after contemporary artist of our time. This is one of my favorite artist and I have been listening to Marc for well over a decade.
What a great year 2016 was for Stomp The Blues Out of Homelessness, Inc. We had significant growth in our direct support for a number of local agencies as well as daily and weekly direct interaction with our friends living in challenging situations.
Obviously, it takes a small army to deliver the mail and we have a number of great volunteers, sponsors and supporters – thanks to each and every one of you.
Our year ended something like this:
August 15, 2016
That’s a wrap,
It seems like Stomp The Blues #6 was just last weekend, maybe Paige, myself and all the others who work to make it possible are just now catching our breath.
Stomp The Blues # 6 was legendary: in music, the new venue, attendance and for the financial help we can now provide to our charity partners. We grew about 15% across the board. Women In Need of The Ozarks has received a donation of $4000, we are incrementally sharing with The Rare Breed, Harmony House and The Veteran’s Coming Home Center.
Stomp The Blues #6 is fast approaching and it seems our event gets here faster every year and it makes me feel as if Christmas is coming. One of the most important issues I have not shared for the most part is how we distribute our proceeds and what we do on a year round basis.
Hello Fellow Supporters of Stomp The Blues Out of Homelessness:
Friends of the Stomp:
Sorry for the delay in reporting the results of a great Stomp #4. Tremendous weather, outstanding new location, great crowd and one heck of a killer line-up.
Special thanks to our local hard working Blues bands: JD & The Mudhounds and Nathan Bryce & Loaded Dice, please get out and support our local musicians.
