As Hibernians around the country pledged their support to the Sandy Hurricane victims Rebecca Davey from the LAOH, Summit County, Ohio decided we needed to do more. AOH member Denny Parks wished Ohio was closer so he could offer hands on assistance to his brothers and sisters as part of the Hibernian weekend work crew. Thoughts like these sparked Rebecca’s idea for a Hibernian Relief Music CD “Hibernians helping Hibernians”, and the two are co-chairing the joint effort for the Ohio AOH-LAOH State Boards.
The project began with a request for donated songs from Hibernian Bands and Musicians as well as Bands and Musicians who work closely with Hibernians around the country. By the time this article was written groups and individuals from Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey have already contacted the two. We are sure to hear from many more around the country willing to offer their songs as well as production assistance. Anyone interested in helping can contact Rebecca and Denny directly: RDAVEY321@YAHOO.COM; DPARKS121@YAHOO.COM .
HOW CAN YOU HELP? Right from the start you can recruit you local bands and musicians to join the cause. 100% of the proceeds will go to Hibernian Charities Disaster Relief assisting the Hibernians who have lost so much in the storm. The second way to help is contact Denny Parks (email@example.com) and order CD’s that you will sell at your local division. The projected cost of a CD is $20. We hope to have the first CD out to AOH and LAOH Divisions in time to sell them during the Green Season. If all goes well there may be a second CD out as we approach the convention season. Please join in this great effort to help the Hibernians suffering the consequences of Hurricane Sandy.
