Lyndee's Benefit Concert Recap
Lyndee's Benefit Concert was held at Playland Skate Center in Austin which donated the space. Beer Land came out and did the alcohol vending and gave a portion of their profit. Jason's Deli provided the catering at no charge. Matt Davidson who is in a band called Bitter End was able to book three other local Austin bands, who also donated their time and energy: The Carrots, Whitman and Grace, The Grackles, and a band called Sound Team (who just signed on with Capitol Records) came out to play. Sound Team was the headlining band.
There was a raffle for donations received, which were a free helicopter ride for two, flying lessons, and Austin City Limits tickets. The raffle alone brought in over $800. A silent auction was held that contained over 30 prizes ranging from digital camera, iPod Nano, camcorder, salon packages, gym memberships, season football tickets for RRISD, Round Rock Express baseball tickets, baseballs autographed by the Atlanta Braves, restaurant gift cards, tanning memberships....and numerous others. Also, silicone wristbands were sold at a price of two dollars. The wristbands are blue and purple and have Lyndee's motto "Live Life to the Fullest" and her initials engraved on them. There are many left over if anybody would like to purchase one. Donations buckets were set up around the area for people to just drop money in and the grand total was just shy of $11,000. The total was $10,908 to be exact, but there are still some people that need to be contacted about the silent auction prizes and collect money from them.
Contact Laura for info on wristbands. Also, she was the mastermind behind this Benefit Concert, she deserves some praise. Drop her line, I know she would appreciate it.
