Bald Again

Many of you know I'm up to my ears in Baldapalooza again.
Last year we put on our little family friendly music festival
and raised a good pile of money for the hospital where Kean
spends way too much of his time.
We are creating a Hall of Heroes to tell the stories of some 
of these brave warrior children fighting cancer and beating the monster.
Here's Kean's photo that will be used as the "example".
It will have his story and a bit of advice for other families
just climbing on this roller coaster.
My friend Fabiana took this and has offered to take all the 
other photos for the Hall of Heroes.
Anyway, this year, we are doing Baldapalooza again--
much bigger and hopefully, that means we'll be 
raising even more money.
This time, proceeds will go to Camp Rainbow Gold.
If you read this blog, you already know how much I LOVE
this organization.  They have healed our family's spirits
while the doctors have worked to heal Kean's body.
Today, I went with one of our musicians down to the local
NBC station to do a little press for the festival.
Desirae Bronson is a country artist who just opened
for Trace Atkins and the month before that, for Joe Nichols.
She was wonderful and I can't wait to hear her belt it out on our stage.
 Here's our line-up for this year's Baldapalooza.
Our headliner -- we think is a big, big deal.
Ashley Monroe is another country musician-- her  Like a Rose album
was named the top country music album of 2013 by
Rolling Stone, The Hollywood Reporter, The New York Times
and Billboard Magazine.
Not too shabby, eh?
Did I mention she is also one of the members of the Pistol Annies?
(Ashley is one of three members-- Miranda Lambert is another).
It should be a night of great, diverse music...
yummy food, a giant Kid's Zone
and hopefully, a triumph in the fundraising department for 
Camp Rainbow Gold.
So... if you live anywhere near the Boise/Eagle area--
buy your tickets now.  We have a promo going on--
only ten bucks for 18 and under.  20 for adults.
And if you don't live close enough to join us,
go to our website:
and make a donation!!!!!
This all came about to help Kean-- we just expanded
it a bit to help all of his friends who are fighting cancer too!
p.s.  We just got word the other night that former NFL great
Steve Young's foundation,Forever Young, will be our 
presenting sponsor.
Guess those old days of emceeing his golf tournaments in Phoenix
have come around to help out!
