MAMA Cares City-Wide Fundraiser May 6-8

Are You Playing?


MAMA Cares is planning its first annual city-wide fundraiser over Mother’s Day Weekend, May 6-8.

If you are playing in the Madison area let us know by contacting Robert J at

All donations raised over the weekend will go toward the Jacy Ray Fund which will help area musicians in their time of need, particularly medical catastrophes. You can read more about MAMA Cares here.

Musicians performing in the city will get posters and other promotion for their events over the weekend. MAMA Cares will provide a collection box and printed materials and musicians are simply asked to help raise donations from the stage.

We continue to collect information about who is playing where over Mother’s Day weekend. Unfortunately, many of the clubs are not up-to-date with their listings so help us fill in the grid below by contacting us right away.

We all get by with a little help from our friends and your help is critical in the ongoing success of MAMA Cares.
