Benefit For Jeffrey Saturday, November 19

LAFAYETTE, IN – A dear member of the Lafayette community, Jeffrey Barbee, wears many hats around the city. He is known around town as a friend, a part of the family, the “Cactus Guy”, a community volunteer, and the list goes on and on. He is not the type that would ever ask anything of anyone, but he is the first to give if anyone asks him. Jeffrey was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 oral cancer, and has endured a long and arduous, highly intense surgery. Once he is recovered from the surgery he will have to undergo chemo and radiation. His recovery will be a long and hard road. Jeffrey has tremendous support from his loving family, but times like these are a tremendous financial strain on everyone involved that’s why he needs everyone’s help.

Many of Lafayette’s phenomenal musicians and entrepreneurs have gotten together to plan a benefit for Jeffrey on Saturday, November 19 at the Lafayette Theater. The tentative schedule includes fantastic music from Fergus DalyDr. Fine and D’GleetScratch Thing, SpaceWords, Frank Muffin, and The Millers. The event will also be featuring DJ Powder and DJ Topher. Events will begin 4 PM and run until 11 PM. All proceeds from this benefit will help Jeffrey with his extraordinary medical expenses and additional cancer treatments while he is forced to be away from work. Right now the event is still slightly in its planning stages, and updates will be posted soon.
