FEST: Dot and Johnstock Benefit at Stony Creek Inn on Saturday

0

The tenth annual Dot and Johnstock Benefit Fest will be held at the Stony Creek Inn from 1-5pm on Saturday (June 16). Back in 2008, the inaugural Dot & Johnstock raised funds and hope for Stony Creek Inn owners Dot Bartell and John Fickel when they began their cancer journey. Since then, that same spirit and community outpouring has benefited Cindy’s Cancer Retreats and the Southern Adirondack Musicians fund.

Cindy’s Retreat, developed by the late Cindy Ginsburg, provides physical, emotional and spiritual healing for women and men living with and beyond cancer, with weekend long programs at Silver Bay and Roaring Brook Ranch in Lake George. The Southern Adirondack Musicians Fund (SAM) provides emergency funds to local and regional musicians and their families facing hardships with limited resources to see them through difficult times.

There will be lots of food to sample at the fest and lots of music to listen to, including performances by Smokey Greene & the Greene Brothers, John & Orion Kribs,, Kevin McKrell, The Bluebillies, Hank Soto, Heather Richards, Roy Hurd, Mark Emanatian and more. The afternoon will also include a silent auction and raffle. Suggested donation is $20.
