Brother Love Music Festival is now asking you to help us help the Belleville Backpack Club!

About this Event

It’s hard to remember how many different versions of the Brother Love Music Festival we came up with this year. It seemed like every time the Leadership Counsel got together we came up with another format that adhered to the county’s latest guidelines on how to deal with COVID-19.

The last meeting was awesome. It was the night before the County imposed the latest 25 person limit. We had 3 bands that didn’t need a big sound system. We had them set up in the gazebo. Great food. Picnic tables 10 feet apart. Awesome.

One of the problems is that almost half of the Counsel – including me n Kari - own bars. We’re trying to figure how to move forward under the new rules let alone what BL is going to look like.

Damn.

We know how to raise funds. We’ve been doing it a while now. It’s got to be a win-win. Provide the customer with good food, good music and a good time they will reward you with the funds to support whatever cause you’re trying to champion. The current circumstances take away the first “win”.

Here’s another thing I know. If you want to make sure no one will ever volunteer again, ask them to help and have nothing for them to do. I can’t tell you the countless people that have told me “If you need any help, let me know.” It’s not that we didn’t need help, it was we didn’t need that much. I learned long ago that you will never get a bored volunteer back.

Ok. I need your help. We need your help. Nurse Becky saw a need for the Backpack Club long before Covid. We have to reward her for that foresight and hard work. No one saw this coming.

Unfortunately this year’s event has turned into an online donation event. This year, instead of using the website to buy an admission ticket, all of the funds will go directly towards the Backpack club.

I hate how one-sided this is. I wish I was more creative to come up with something that would send people flocking to the website. I must be losing my touch.

I’m pissed.

Please go onto the website and donate. Every donation over $50 will receive a free Brother Love can coozie. $100 donation gets a limited edition Brother Love T-shirt. Anyone who donates and gets two other people to donate will get my extreme admiration. If you get the most people to donate you win. And we know everyone loves a winner.

I want to thank my good friends on the counsel. Mark Schwoegler, Ashley Ace, Randy Nolden, Pat Boersma, Paul Nemec, Honker, Scott Hare, Mike Farber and my wife Kari came up creative ideas time and again to pull this event off.

Help us help the families of the Belleville school district that need a hand. Anything you can donate will be a big help. I can’t imagine everything that’s going on in the world and having the additional worry of not being able feed your family. No one deserves that. Let’s show everyone that it will take a lot more than a virus to stop us.

COVID?

Stick it up your ass.

You bastard.
