FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE September 1, 2017 Banner Music is Hosting a “Writer’s Round-A-Thon” Fundraiser for Those Impacted by Hurricane Harvey in Texas
Nashville, Tenn. - Banner Music is hosting a “Writers Round-A-Thon” in support of recovery efforts for the Galveston County community and other communities affected by Hurricane Harvey. The event will take place from 4:00 PM to 10:00 PM at Banner Music on Thursday, September 7, 2017.
The Writers Round-A-Thon will include five writers rounds each featuring four local songwriters. The event is free to those who would like to attend, but Banner Music kindly asks that attendees bring a donation item. Banner Music will be streaming the event via Facebook Live on their page with a link to donate to Wade Bowen’s Music Heals: Bowen Family Foundation. Bowen is currently on the ground in Texas helping with relief efforts and will be dispersing the funds to charitable organizations helping in the recovery damage caused by Harvey.
The evening will be hosted by Ashley Kate Rogers, a local songwriter who was born and raised in Galveston County, Texas. The event hits close to home for Rogers whose relatives have been directly affected by the catastrophic storms. Galveston County locals have requested baby diapers, baby wipes, formula, nonperishable food, packs of water, school supplies, dog and cat food, personal hygiene items, blankets, towels and cleaning supplies. She will be bringing all donation items directly to Texas herself when she travels there to help during clean up and rebuild efforts.
