Top act: Warren Maxwell will be headlining the Jam for Lincoln charity concert in Masterton next month. Photo: ESTHER BUNNING Music support for cancer kids Touched by the plight of child cancer patients, Wairarapa musicians are banding together to stage a charity concert next month. Jam for Lincoln came about after Masterton printer and musician Michael McDonald learnt his friends son Lincoln Kai, aged four, had been recently diagnosed with leukaemia. You have such a feeling of hopelessness, Mr McDonald says. Determined to help in any way he could, Mr McDonald began contac- ting other musicians and sponsors. The response was overwhelming , he said, with the Saturday August 6 event at the Copthorne Solway Park shaping as a must-do on the social calendar. As well as securing top musical acts such as Warren Maxwell, numerous sponsors have come to the party donating nearly $8000 worth of prizes, which will be raffled off. The generosity of people is just amazing -- businesses are really keen to get involved, he said. Among the big contributors is Cop- thorne Solway Park, which is provid- ing the venue and the bar; and Stihl Shop Masterton, a Stihl MS441 Chainsaw valued at $2245. Along with the acclaimed Maxwell, seven other bands will perform. They include Mr McDonald s own band SKAper, and Rainbow Country, Deaf Lemon, Sneaky Roots, Master- huna, Ninja Monkey and Wicked Minx. Initially, proceeds from the event were to go to Lincoln and his family, but through the Child Cancer Foun- dation it was discovered there were 15 other children in Wairarapa also facing a heartbreaking battle . So now the fundraising will be for all 16 child cancer patients. Raffle tickets cost $5 a ticket or $40 for a book of ten tickets. The raffle, split into 12 prize packages, will be drawn at Jam for Lincoln. The other sponsors to date are: Summit Lodge, Cookware Essen- tials, Watermart Wairarapa, Print- craft, Professional Gilding Services, Saunders Shoes, Polka Dots, Anna Campbell Photography, Toyworld Masterton, The Sanctuary, O.So.U, Trev s Sports, The Villa Beauty Therapy, First Class Hair Studio, Dish Cafe, Quality Inn Marine Par- ade Napier, Tunnel Tyres, Entice Cafe, Black Sheep Jewellery, The Chemists, Ballantynes Masterton, Nicol Jewellers, Hunting & Fishing, Lennox Design Studio, Lamberts Cycles, Yvonne s Knitwear, The Horseshoe Cafe, Noel Lemmings, Paper Plus, In Ore Jewellery, Rachel McArthur Beauty Therapist, Haloz Hair Studio, Zinga, The Village Grinder. Tickets cost $15, or $2 for children, with the show scheduled to get under way at 6pm.
