July 15th Event – Help Us Out!

Fun fact of the day: There are more than 500 million retired cell phones scattered around homes in the United States. Unlike most retirees, however, they’re not playing golf and visiting the grandkids; these retired phones are probably just taking up space in kitchen junk drawers or being given to toddlers to smear peanut butter on.

What you may not realize is that these old and outdated phones could be serving a higher purpose—by recycling them, you could help survivors of domestic violence.

To donate your unused phones just deposit them in a container that will be supplied at this event. If you have accessories…you can put into a baggie to keep them together. You don’t need to erase the data from your old device before sending—if refurbished, the item’s software is replaced with new software which will completely wipe clean any stored information from your device.

Sing to Stop Domestic Violence

sing to stop - jul15If you can’t wait for this Extravaganza Event with one of the greatest causes to support, then you need to know some history of it’s making.  The story below is told by the Facebook Administrator for Nied’s Hotel, James Buckley.  Nied’s Hotel is always excited to bring talented entertainment to it’s venue, but when it can be associated to a cause of this magnitude, these people below are always ready to help out!  This is an all day event and has some of Pittsburgh’s best local entertainment

How did “Sing to Stop Domestic Violence” get started. The story as I best as I can recall. I asked Jim Nied if he would be interested in doing a female concert of some sort. We arranged a meeting with good friend Slim Forsythe and the three of us talked about my idea….it turned into a benefit from our conversation and I believe Slim mentioned domestic violence . we all agreed that this would be perfect. While deciding when we would have this Jim told us that the Iron City Slickers were booked on July 15th and we thought that would be a good day to do it culminating in the Slickers show at 7pm.
I told Jim that I would probably be doing sound for the Slickers that night anyway and the idea was brought up to ask if they would donate their PA for the day.
Jimmy said I should give John Vento a call about The Angels, who, led by Trisha Higgins helped with benefits with the Nied’s Hotel Band….a meeting was arranged with all of us and everything was agreed to move forward….Having Trisha and her own experience with domestic violence was a huge win for the event. Having someone like that and the rest of the Angels would give us awesome support to pull this off.
Next, I started contacting performers who might be available and I specifically wanted women to be the stars and it didn’t take long to fill the lineup. Hats off to all of those who stepped up to perform for this…the response was quick and enthusiastic…I had so many that I couldn’t get all who responded to participate. I ran out of stage time… some had other commitments but the response was enormous. This is when I realized, for sure, that this was meant to be.
I could go on and on about all the other groups, people and organizations that jumped on this bus of ours for this journey to help those who feel helpless but they should know that they are hugely appreciated by myself and all of us. We have become a family of sorts in this crusade. And many thanks to my family for supporting my involvement in this as, I believe, is one of my purposes on this earth. To help spread love and care among my brothers and sisters. Peace to all and prayers for a great day on July 15th, 2017.
