Pink Ribbon Concert Series coming to Elkins

ELKINS — The Pink Ribbon Concert Series is coming to Elkins on Friday, Oct. 25. These concerts are sponsored by Mon Health Systems with organizational help from the West Virginia Jazz Society.

The proceeds from these concerts, taking place throughout the region, are set to benefit Mon Health Medical Center’s Angel Fund. The Angel Fund helps cancer patients with out-of-pocket expenses such as gas money to and from medical appointments.

The concert series started last year with the WV Jazz Society. The president, Eric Spelsberg, said “the reaction was very positive.” Spelsberg then met with David Goldberg, the CEO of Mon Health, and Goldberg was interested in forming a partnership almost immediately.

The dates between Oct. 7 and 26 were chosen “because of the connection to National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and because October would be a perfect time to encourage people to drive though the beautiful mountains during fall foliage season on their way to hear some great music,” said Spelsberg.

On Oct. 25 in Elkins, The Boss Ladies will be performing at El Gran Sabor between 6:30 and 8:30 pm. The Boss Ladies consist of Rachael Franks, Gracie Metheny and Lauren Winans.

The show requests a $10 admission donation and reservations can be made by texting 304-517-9813 or emailing wvjazzsociety@aol.com.

Other acts in the series include Libby Eddy and The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers in Weston, Sharon Clark’s Tribute to Nat King Cole in Clarksburg, The Gracie Metheny Band in Kingwood, and Tania Grubbs in Morgantown.
