East of Afton and The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen would like to thank EVERYONE for making the 2013 4th Annual Richmond Bluegrass Marathon Jam a huge success! We had over 2300 people attend to see 20 of the area's best bluegrass and roots bands perform on two stages for twelve straight hours. It was a fantastic mix of musicians and music fans with open jams throughout the venue from start to finish. Local BBQ and beer helped keep everyone happy while we put all of our efforts toward raising money for the Richmond Fisher House.
The whole event is geared toward supporting military families through a donation to the Richmond Fisher House, a home-away-from-home for families staying close to their soldiers who are receiving care at the McGuire Veterans Medical Center in Richmond. We are SO PROUD to say that our event has added to our previous total of $24,000 donated to-date with a new record donation of $13,000 this year! This means the grand total over the last four years of the Richmond Bluegrass Marathon Jam comes to a whopping $37,000 going directly into the hands of the Fisher House to care for these families. THANK YOU!
We're continuing to work to grow this annual event into a Richmond music and giving tradition. Keep an eye on this website as well as our Facebook site for updates and plans for the 5th Annual Jam coming in 2014!
