‘Jingles for James’ Result

The benefit concert for local musician James “Bull” Canty this past Sunday was  a fantastic success.  A few statistics from the afternoon’s proceedings:

Size of Audience: 300 (at least!)
Total Musical Numbers Performed: 23
Singers: 13
Instrumentalists: 8
Pianists/Organists: 6
Jazz Bands: 1
Chamber Choirs: 1
Brass Quartets: 1
Total Number of Musicians: 27

Total notes played by James Canty: 835,298 (estimate)

Dollars Raised: $7,594.41

James is very close to his goal of $9000, and the money raised from this event virtually guartantees that Bull will be able to get the surgical procedure that he needs.  If you missed the concert but would still like to make a contribution, you can send a check made out to First United Methodist Church, Myrtle Beach (put ‘James Canty’ in the memo line), 901 N Kings Hwy, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577.  The church will write a check for the total of all the money collected made out jointly to James Canty and the Medical University of South Carolina.

Thanks to all for supporting this effort; I am proud to have been a part of it.  In the words concert coordinator Tim Koch, “The arts at work!  What a triumph!  Congratulations and thanks to all!”
