Free Country For a Cause Music Fest Saturday, April 21

From Our Lady of Rose Hill Ministries

COLUMBUS, GA - Nashville recording artist and Columbus, GA native son, GEORGIA CLAY will be coming home to perform in the Country For A Cause Music Fest (and Pickle Jar Round UP) on Saturday, April 21, 2012 from 7-10 p.m. 

The Stephen Sebastian Band will open the performance. The  performance will take place on the Outdoor Stage, 1100 Block of Broadway.  100% of profits go to provide services for the local poor and homeless population. 

 After working on my music in Nashville for the past 9 years, I'm excited to come back home and play for my family and friends, especially for such a worthy cause," Clay said. "I am impressed that any  ministry with only 6 or 8 core volunteers could serve 45,000 home cooked meals to the poor and homeless in my hometown community."    Since arriving in the Music City in 2003, the 2001 Pacelli High graduate has finished his   music degree, opened his own production company, developed keen guitar chops, and impressive singing and songwriting skills.

Georgia Clay has released 2 CDs:  GEORGIA CLAY (2010) and HOW DO YOU FOLLOW THAT? (2011).  His latest CD features the well-received track "21 GUN SALUTE", a tribute to fallen ranger and fellow Pacelli High graduate (2002) PFC  John M.  Henderson, Jr. who made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan in August, 2005. 

Country For A Cause is the annual fundraiser for Our Lady of Rose Hill Ministries.  "We are a ministry devoted to living the corporal and spiritual works of mercy in our daily lives." said Susan Wieczorek, one of the founding members.  100% of what we take in goes back out.  No one is paid.  This year, our 10% tithe of our profits will go to Carpenter's Way Boys Ranch, a home for young homeless preteen and adolescent boys.  Prior recipients of our tithe have included the House of Mercy, the City of Columbus Plan to Eradicate Homelessness, and the newly homeless in Haiti.  The "pickle jar" aspect asks us to live in solidarity with the truly hungry by fasting from sweets, sodas, or a day of meals weekly, putting the change in the pickle jar and dropping it off at Country For A Cause." 

 So come on down, grab your pickle jar, and come hungry for an evening of music, fun, games, a 50-50 drawing, and help support a worthy cause.

For information on the event, contact Gerald Wieczorek at (706)593-2649, or email to:  countryforacause@msn.com; or GeraldWieczorek@msn.com .
