Heather Carnahan- Music for a Cause
Bronze Owl Brewing
506 Vine Street
Poplar Bluff, MO
I hope to see the house packed for this event. Everyone has been touched by cancer at some point in their lives. Heather and her friends lost a very dear friend of theirs, Kimmie, 2 weeks after being diagnosed at the young age of 34.
For the past 4 years Kimmie’s friends have gone on to fight the battle, in her memory, by raising money to help fight cancer. Every penny they raise goes to the American Cancer Society. So we ask that you come out and help their cause with a friendly donation while Heather and some friends entertain you with music while you eat and/or drink.
