Sister Hazel, Edwin McCain, and Emerson Hart of Tonic 

Platinum-selling band, Sister Hazel, is set to host the first ever Lyrics for Life event in their hometown of Gainesville, FL on Sunday, November 5. Presented by Rich and Carissa Blaser, the evening event will raise funds for the non-profit charities Lyrics for Life’s Camp Hazelnut and Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation as well as with all Lyrics For Life events, STOP Children’s Cancer in Gainesville, FL. Attendees will enjoy cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres as they browse a star-studded silent auction, featuring items from some of the music industry’s biggest names. There will be a very unique and special acoustic songwriter in the round performance by Sister Hazel, Edwin McCain, and Emerson Hart of Tonic. Tickets are $150 and available here
“Most of us have been touched by it, a loved one, a friend, a co-worker dealing with this disease. Our desire to help comes from a real place, from real loss,” said lead singer Ken Block. “It gives us the energy and ambition to fight back. We ARE fighting back! It’s a personal mission of ours to foster and create events that are fun, cool, exciting, and ultimately meaningful to this vital cause. Together we can make a real difference.”
Lyrics for Life has donated approximately $250k over the years to Gainesville’s STOP Children’s Cancer Charity. They have also benefited other Cancer Charities around the country including Children’s Cancer Center of Tampa and Camp Sunshine in Atlanta.
About Lyrics For Life:
Lyrics For Life is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer. Sister Hazel frontman, Ken Block, and his band mates founded Lyrics For Life in memory of Ken’s younger brother, Jeffrey, who ultimately lost his four-year battle with cancer that started at age 14. The charity unites musicians and celebrities for concert events, auctions, and other fundraising efforts. The monies raised are donated to groups that are working to find a cure, as well as those aiming to enrich the lives of patients and their families. From research to summer camps and family support groups, we are surrounding this disease and conquering it from every angle. Artists participate in many ways, often by donating handwritten lyrics to one of their songs on anything from a simple sheet of paper to a surfboard to some other unique item, which we offer for auction at one of our Lyrics For Life events. Our team of musicians, volunteers, sponsors, and supporters set high goals for the future. We accept the challenge to find new ways of raising money and awareness and to help make each day a little brighter until there is a cure.  http://www.lyricsforlife.org/
About Camp Hazelnut: 
Decades of familiar, happy faces cover the walls in the dining hall of Camp Crystal Lake outside Gainesville, FL. Kids around the U.S. have been spending summers there for as long as anyone can remember, so when the Camp’s Director, Scott Burton, got word to the band that he would love to collaborate on an event, everyone loaded up the car and headed out for a visit. The conversation started simply as a family-focused Sister Hazel fan event—a weekend “summer camp” retreat with activities, bonfires, cabins, and, of course, music. When Sister Hazel decided to also invite some regional kids with cancer and their families, the idea took on a whole new meaning, and the weekend turned out to be far more powerful than anyone first imagined: so much so, that they decided to center future Camp Hazelnut events around these special kids and families. The Camp Hazelnut goal is simple: create a playful, safe, uplifting experience for kids and families navigating the overwhelming challenges of a cancer diagnosis. It’s a place to simply get away and come together. The campers embark on a great exploration to discover (or rediscover!) the magic that can only be created at summer camp, and the band is right there alongside them every step of the way, leading activities, playing acoustic campfire sing-alongs, sharing, giggling, and having a blast. http://www.lyricsforlife.org/camp-hazelnut
 

About The Florida Cancer Specialists (FCS) Foundation:

 
The Florida Cancer Specialists (FCS) Foundation was founded in 2011 by a group of Florida Cancer Specialists partner physicians who recognized many patients struggle with everyday living expenses while undergoing cancer treatment. They believed no one should choose between paying bills and receiving cancer treatment. The FCS Foundation provides financial support to qualified cancer patients and their families for expenses such as rent or mortgage, car payments and utility bills. By giving patients peace of mind in knowing that their bills are being paid while they are undergoing treatment, we allow them to concentrate on what really matters fighting cancer and getting well.Non-medical, financial aid from the FCS Foundation is available to Florida residents 18 years of age or older who are receiving cancer treatment from a Florida oncologist. Recipients must have a household income at or below 200% of the national poverty guidelines. 100% of donations received go directly towards paying the essential living expenses of someone with cancer.

Sister Hazel’s 2nd Annual Camp Hazelnut A HUGE Success

NASHVILLE, TN (October 25, 2016) -Platinum-selling group, Sister Hazel, hosted the 2nd Annual “Camp Hazelnut” at Camp Crystal Lake outside Gainesville, FL October 21 – 23, 2016. Camp Hazelnut began with a simple goal: for the band to create a playful, safe, uplifting event for children and families navigating the overwhelming challenges of a cancer diagnosis and to get together with their fans (the Hazelnuts) to share a unique summer camp experience. This year, with triple the available spots for youth and families, forever friendships were made. The band members and camp counselors led activities including archery, water sports, arts and crafts, alpine tower ropes course, songwriting sessions, singalongs, and s’mores at the campfire. Sister Hazel partnered with Wyc Grousbeck, co-owner of the Boston Celtics, to make the event even more special. Grousbeck will once again sponsor Camp Hazelnut in 2017.

“Our 2nd Annual Camp Hazelnut was over the top this weekend!” said Ken Block, Sister Hazel’s lead singer. “It’s hard to put into words what an amazing event this is. Hosting so many incredible kids and their families who are dealing with cancer is hugely inspirational. It was a great escape from the real world, and we all recharged and reconnected with extraordinary families, awesome Hazelnuts, incredible camp counselors, and unforgettable activities at Camp Crystal Lake in beautiful North Florida. This means an awful lot to me personally, having lost my own little brother to cancer when we were teenagers. We already can’t wait until next year!”

“Camp Hazelnut” is part of Sister Hazel’s “Lyrics for Life Foundation” (www.lyricsforlife.org), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer. Sister Hazel frontman, Ken Block, and his band mates founded “Lyrics for Life” in memory of Ken’s younger brother, Jeffrey, who ultimately lost his four-year battle with cancer that started at age 14.

All For a Good Cause…All for fun…And All for you :)…

Lace up your jogging shoes, rock your flip flops, or just come barefoot for a fun filled morning of Hazelnut high fives near the high tides! We'll all get together for a crawl, walk, or jog (your choice) along the beautiful beaches of Isle of Palms, South Carolina. There will be lots of laughs, some sea shells, soft sand, several pelicans, and a little exercise. Cruise up and down the beach alongside your favorite Sister Hazel band members and your fellow Hazelnuts, all for a great cause. Come on out and get moving with us…and don't forget the sunscreen!! 🙂

Sister Hazel's Lyrics For Life Foundation raises money for childhood cancer research and for other programs that support children and their families as they navigate the challenges of a life changing cancer diagnosis and it's treatment.

  • Your generous $25 donation and pre-registration gets you a cool Lyrics for Life “Crawl, Walk or Jog” tee-shirt that you will receive at the walk check-in on Saturday 6/11.
  • You can certainly attend the event and not pre-register but we wouldn’t be able to guarantee a cool tee-shirt. You wouldn’t want to miss out. Would you?
  • The tee-shirts are donated by our merch partners at Campus Customs so 100% of your $25 donation goes straight to Lyrics for Life.

This whole event is designed to have FUN, get a little light exercise, to hang out and to benefit Lyrics For Life Childhood Cancer Foundation. The race course is a simple up and back route right on the beach. The beach will NOT be cleared for this so we will have to dodge a few beach goers. Personally I think this will make things even more fun. And remember, this is ALL about fun! 🙂 We will start right behind The Windjammer, hit the beach, and then all “Crawl, Walk, or Jog” south toward Breach Inlet where we'll all loop back around and finish up right back where we started.
