button. Click “Donate Now”
…On the next page, enter the dollar amount for the number of tickets you want (if you want one ticket, enter $25…two tickets enter $50, etc.)…then enter zip code, and press Continue. Next page enter your credit card info, click Next. When you finish the transaction, print out your receipt which will be emailed to you, and that receipt will be your ticket into the event. If you are a couple “donating” $50, one receipt will suffice. (Or whatever multiples of $25 you have attending). If you can’t print your receipt, we will have a list of everyone who purchased a ticket, so we can cross-reference at the door. So, you don’t absolutely need to print out your receipt, but it will make things go smoother at the door. Thank you! We are going through this site to keep our costs down…other dedicated “Ticket Sites” take a larger percentage of ticket sales. This way, more money can go to Alisa. Still have questions?
...email Jeff Miller (located under the Donate Now button). Alisa Anderson (Alisa B)
was diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer in December 2014, and sadly lost her battle on Oct 8, 2015. Over the years, Alisa has done countless charity/fundraising gigs - always there to contribute, not only with her amazing voice, but in any way she could help. Now it's our turn to give back to her and celebrate this wonderful life that touched so many people.
Alisa was the lead singer of Simon Apple
in the early 90’s, so the past and current members of the band have organized this event, reuniting for this one-time performance to raise money for Alisa. All net proceeds will go to cover any of Alisa’s final expenses, and any remainder will go as a scholarship in Alisa’s name to the Reading Musical Foundation
, where Alisa was a vocal coach.
Simon Apple members scheduled to perform: John Feldmann, Mark Ludwig, Kurt Manderbach, Dan Merrill, Dave Miller, Jeff Miller, Stefon Pizzuto, Buzz Saylor, Brad Weisman. There will be additional guest musicians that Alisa has performed with over the years as well…including Keli Vale, Scotti Mann (Groovemasters), Cliff Starkey (Groovemasters), Danny Thompson (Arthur's Museum), Brian Varhelyi (Arthur's Museum), Scott Lloyd (Arthur's Museum), Jenifer Kinder (Uptown Band), Marty Hill... check back here, or www.simonapple.com
, as we will add any extra musicians to the list as they are confirmed.
We are strongly
encouraging advance ticket sales (for proper staff and food preparation at the venue). No tickets at the door. If you are unable to attend, you can donate here: https://www.gofundme.com/yz4tqgr5
