I have copied this directly from an e-mail sent to the IBMA e-mail list. I am not sure if we will be able to attend, since it is a 4 hour drive away, and the Sunday before Christmas. However, we will make the trip if we do not have family plans for that day. I hope you will consider helping out if you can. Gerald and Dale have surely provided hours of entertainment, and many generous gifts of their time and talent over the years.
Thanks from the bluegrass community, and the sponsors of the show.
Honoring Gerald Evans Jr. and Dale Vanderpool

I 71, Exit 50 at US 68
Both of these talented entertainers have made a lifetime of contributions to the Bluegrass community throughout Ohio and across the country. They are both battling cancer. A day of music from some of their fellow entertainers will be a great benefit to Gerald, Dale and their families.
