We get a chance to help Ron Fanelli this weekend. Ron’s wife Catherine, or Kitty to her friends, died recently in a fire at their home. This Saturday night (Sept. 19th), starting at 8pm, a beef and beer fundraiser takes place in Philadelphia to raise money to get Ron back on his feet financially. Avalon String Band, which he is a member of, is sponsoring the event, but it takes place at Oregon Fancy Club at 1728 S. 2nd Street, near Moore. The charge is $25.00. In a tough time when Mummers are being squeezed in every direction, finding the time or money can be even more difficult than usual. But, this is a clear case of the right and needed thing to do. If you cannot attend, Avalon SB is accepting donations before and after. And thank you Avalon and Oregon for stepping up to lead the way to help Ron.
