Rattlesnake Eddie benefit

So, there was a scheduled benefit for Rattlesnake Eddie, at the God and Country theater on June 14, to help offset his medical bills, due to his recent cancer. But I just was told he passed away last Saturday, 3 days ago. Anyone know if the benefit concert event is still scheduled?

I just checked with a friend who works at God and Country Theatre where it was to be held. They are still doing a benefit, but the venue is being changed. Not sure if the date will be the same either. I’ll keep watching Facebook for an update.

I finally got the info. The benefit has been cancelled. There will be a Celebration of Life and end it held at a later date at Shepherd of the Hills. Date yet to be determined.

Ok. Quite a few entertainers had volunteered to donate their time and talent to help. I appreciate their selfless and caring spirit even if the benefit is cancelled. A celebration of life is very meaningful, also. Thanks for the latest update!
