Join us for an enjoyable afternoon of great music, food, drinks, and positive vibes at a venue in Watsonville. There is a shuttle going to the venue from the Calabasas Elementary School parking lot.
This is a life-affirming fundraising event to benefit Marla Starla and help her get back on her feet after more than a year of cancer treatment that derailed her health and career and uprooted her from her Santa Cruz home.
In the summer of 2020, Marla was diagnosed with an invasive cancer requiring surgery and ongoing chemotherapy. this has curtailed her careers as an educator and performer and has uprooted her from her Santa Cruz community and housing.
Your admission ticket includes served hors d’oeuvres, wine, soft drinks and a rip-roaring good time.
Performers will include Star La’Moan and The Kitchenettes (Everything AND the kitchen sink!), John Michael, Restless Souls, Bob O’Neill and many more talented musical friends. There will be raffles to win art, jewelry, local food and restaurant packages and much more!
Dear friends, family, colleagues and community of Star La’Moan aka Marla Stone Lyons
In September 2020, Marla was diagnosed with an aggressive and advanced form of ovarian cancer. After the initial surgery, she moved to the Roseville area where her dear and generous friend, Bob, has graciously housed and helped her through months of intensive ongoing chemotherapy.
Marla needs your help to get back on her feet after more than a year of cancer treatment that derailed her health, curtailed her careers as an educator and performer and has uprooted her from her community.
Housing costs are expensive everywhere in California. Marla needs an affordable and stable living situation and is currently unable to to earn a living. She needs monetary support to cover the necessities of rent, food, utilities, insurance and out- of- pocket medical expenses.
We want to give Marla the best chance to live a quality life and she is grateful for your love, prayers, support and anything you can do to help.
Our goal is to raise at least $25,000 to help pay for food, housing, utilities, insurance as well as excessive medical costs not covered by her insurance. Every gift is deeply appreciated. Thank you too, for sharing this fundraiser with your networks.
