July 14, 2017 Vonnie and Steve Jakubiec lost everything they own to a sink hole in Land O Lakes, Florida.  They were living in this home and are not the owners of the house. Vonnie and Steve are left with the clothes on their backs that they were wearing when they left for work that morning only 30 mintues before their home was swallowed by a sink hole.  

Vonnie and Steve have an incredible ablitly to rally people together for mile stones, holidays, and any excuse to celebrate the beauty of life. They both have a deep understanding of the fragility of each day. Vonnie is a cancer survivor and Steve was fighting with her every step during her recovery. They will get through this, but they do need your help. It's our turn to rally the people together to help Vonnie and Steve. 

Please help me , Vonnie's niece, raise money for Vonnie and Steve Jakubiec as they piece together a new life. Anything helps.

“Build It Back” Benefit
On Friday, the 14th of July, a huge sinkhole swallowed two homes and all the belongings of several families here in the bay area.

Two of the victims, Steve and Vonnie Jakubiec have been very supportive fans of the local music scene in Tampa Bay and have been attending concerts and shows for many years. The Jakubiecs have followed several area bands, and have become dear friends to many area musicians. When the news of the tragedy hit, these bands all knew it was time to do something to help.

One of Steve and Vonnie’s favorite places to attend concerts, is Skipper’s Smokehouse, and when Tom White of Skipper’s learned of this, he was also more than happy to help.

“Build It Back”, a benefit helping several of these families, will be at Skipper’s Smokehouse on Sunday August 27th from 5-9 p.m. (doors open at 4 p.m.). The lineup includes: 4X, Solar Exposure Band, Peace of Woodstock and Stonegrey. Ticket prices are $10 (in advance) or $15 (day of show).
