Sunday, October 26, 2003 -- all day -- 2pm until midnight

Your paltry double sawski, that's just $20, will go to help support Adrianna Lee Ellis and Mariah Linne Ellis, three and five, who tragically lost their 27-year-old Mom, Amanda Fox, to leukemia this past August.

That $20 will also buy you an incredible day of music.

The girls are being raised by their grandfather, Mickey Fox, reports Daniel Castro.
"This is very difficult time for the family and these little girls will need all the financial help they can get," Daniel says. "Bay Area musicians have always been willing to donate their time and talent to worthy causes and this is one that really touches your heart.
"I'm glad to be a part of this and hope that the community supports the cause. We've got a great lineup and the $20 admission is a small price to pay for such great entertainment, but more importantly, the proceeds will really help Amanda and Mariah."
The goal is to raise money to establish a college education fund for the two youngsters.

The musical lineup is almost unbelievable:

Santa Rosa 
The Alameda All Stars    
Daniel Castro      
Tommy Castro      
Chris Cobb      
The Detroit Disciples      
Nick Gravenites      
Ron Hacker      
Levi Lloyd      
The MO Blues Band      
Johnny Nitro      
The Royal Dogs      
Volker Strifler      
Joe Louis Walker      

Don't Miss This One!
