The Wailin’ Jennys Come to Greensboro!
On March 6th at The Carolina Theater in Greensboro, the Wailin’ Jennys held a concert that was very well attended.
While on tour, The Wailin’ Jennys do fundraising for NAMI Affiliates, and NAMI Guilford was a fortunate recipient on that date!
How the fundraiser works is this: The Wailin’ Jennys offer merchandise (a collection of their CD’s and a T-shirt) via a raffle, the donors make a donation to obtain a ticket- the donation can be any amount.
That evening we raised $1188.
In the photo, you see Linda Greninger and Katja Brown, NAMI Board members who assisted with this process. Not pictured, Mitch McGee and Katrina Carter (Katrina provided technical assistance from home!)
We were also allowed to enjoy their wonderful concert. If you are not familiar with The Wailin’ Jennys – check out their website: www.thewailinjennys.com, The are described as a “three-part harmony, acoustic folk-roots band” & they have their music for sale on their website. We feel especially fortunate since much of their tour was postponed due to the COVID 19 pandemic!
We hope you check them out, and possibly support them too!
