Cornwall Ontario – $3812 was raised at a benefit concert Saturday night at La Maison Tavern in Cornwall to benefit Lily.
Lily Douglas is a 4 year old child battling stage four cancer.
“Tonight I am truly humbled. Cornwall came together to help a family in need and I’m proud to say I am from Cornwall. We always come together in times of need. That being said, I would like to thank all the bands and the staff at La Maison for all their hard work. The benefit for Lily Douglas was a huge success. We raised $3812 for her,” said Rodney Rivette who is a musician and co-promoter of the concert.
The proceeds raised are going to help Lily’s parents travel expenses.
“I’m grateful to have been a part of this,” said musician Marc Muir who donated his time to play this show.
The line-up featured Elly May, Slim and the Fatkid (Marc Muir and Rodney Rivette) with special guests including Rod Robillard, Winston Marley, Mena Hardy, Arclights, and Red Flag.
“Last night was pretty amazing! The support from the Cornwall Community was outstanding! Thank you from Lily and her entire family,” concluded Randy Ravary.
