Music Fest MS, the first annual fundraiser in support of Multiple Sclerosis held on May 5, 2019, founded, organized, and hosted by Ben Klick raised $27,500 in a single day. This made the event one of the largest, single-day fundraisers in MS history. A few weeks after the show, that total was raised to over $35,000.
The community response was incredible. The idea was to bring together a community; Those that are directly and indirectly affected, local businesses, and country music fans. 411 people filled the theatre that night, and I’m looking forward to what’s to come in 2020!
A huge thank you goes out to all of the sponsors that made this show happen:
