Community: Fundraiser for Fallon family planned; benefit to raise money for cancer expenses

Three high energy fiddle players and three raffle prizes will converge at one place and one time to raise money for a local family in need.

Set for Monday, Feb. 20, at the Sequim High School auditorium, this benefit concert and raffle is open to the public and all proceeds will go to help the Jason Fallon family. Lora Fallon has been battling appendix cancer for four years. She has tried every treatment available to her in an effort to be here for her husband and four children, ages 11-17.

Even with insurance through Jason Fallon’s work at the State Patrol, the co-pays, treatments and medicines not covered by insurance and endless trips to Seattle for specialized care due to the rareness of the cancer, have been crushing financially.

This concert and raffle hopes to change all that.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the music starts at 7 p.m. The drawings for the three winners will be after the concert ends.

Raffle prizes, music

“The outpouring of generous raffle prizes from local businesses has been amazing,” said Lisa Cowan, the event’s main organizer.

“But, the music will be equally awesome,” Cowan said. “Some people remember Joey Gish as the fantastic fiddle player for the local band Abbie Mae and the Homeschool Boys. Kate Powers is a prodigy virtuoso. It’s likely she will be nationally recognized someday. Fiddle with It is a father who plays guitar and a son on the fiddle. They love to draw crowds on the ferry or on the street or down at the Agnew Grocery. My three favorite local performers all on the same night!”
