Not Dead Yet Concert and Fundraiser

Not DEAD Yet’s concert and fundraiser is shaping up to be a great party for a very worthy cause. We are expecting a great crowd on Friday night from all over the area. The Town of Lewisboro Parks and Recreation Department has waived the fee that they normally charge to rent out the Town Park Pavilion. Thanks again to Dana Mayclim and her team!!

Some quick information:

--There will be a representative from Make-A-Wish at the event. Donations can be made in cash or checks made out to MAW— Hudson Valley . If you can’t make our party but would still like to make a donation, please mail checks to, and be sure to mention the “Party in the Park”
Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Hudson Valley
The Wish House
832 South Broadway
Tarrytown , New York 10591

--We have an alcohol permit so load up your coolers with ice and your beverage of choice. There are several grills available for cooking—just bring charcoal and your food of choice.

--Bring your “soccer” chairs and/or blankets…It will be a warm, dry night, so dress “cool” and don’t be lazy—come on out and enjoy a night outside with good people, great music and an even better cause!!

--Our goal (and that of the Town of Lewisboro ) is to leave the area in the same or better condition than we found it. Please remember to take out what you bring in and use the trash cans in the Pavilion and Stage area.

--There are porta-john’s in the area so no worries there J

--All suggestions & ideas to help the amount of funds we raise are welcome—just send an e-mail.

--We’ll send out another reminder later in the week—in the meantime, spread the word!!

We would like to invite all of you to spend a fun evening outdoors at the Lewisboro Town Park Concert Stage and Pavilion. Our event on Friday night July 18th is FREE -- all we ask is that you consider making a donation to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of the Hudson Valley when you arrive. No amount is too big or too small and we can assure you that whatever you can afford to give, you will surely not miss the next day. We will be donating ALL net proceeds from this event directly to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Hudson Valley .
