Funeral Costs for Tommy's Daughter

$2,210 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 48 people in 12 months
Created December 11, 2017
Tommy Neal tragically lost his daughter Brenda and sister in law Melody Waltermeyer to a fire at a friend's house in Shrewsbury Pa. on December 8. Brenda and Melody had actually made it out safely at first, but they attempted to return to the house to save a cat, got  trapped and were unable to escape the second time

Tommy, a well respected banjo player, has been a prominent member of the Bluegrass community in the mid Atlantic for years. A group of musicians are rallying to help Tommy generate some funds to assist with funeral expenses for his daughter and help him support Brenda's son Tyler. Tommy recently became the sole gaurdian for Tyler who was born with developmental disabilities. 

Along with this GoFundMe campaign, a group of local musicians are planning an all day Bluegrass concert to generate more funds for Tommy on Sunday 1/28 from noon to 10 PM at the Victory Villa Community Center in Middle River.  Currently the lineup will include

Bluestone
Jeff Presley and South Central Bluegrass
Carroll County Ramblers
Tom Mindte and the Patuxent Partners
Copper Canyon
Frankie Short and Northern Connection
Blue Train
Rick Jones and the Foggy Hollow Boys
Annapolis Bluegrass Coalition
