When singer/songwriter Ron Young announced his cancer diagnosis, he was overwhelmed by the support of his family, friends, and fans. Now, they're coming together, along with some of the biggest names in South Texas music, to celebrate his life and help him in his fight.
On Sunday, February 17, Sam's Burger Joint will host “Forever Young,” an all-day event featuring performances by:
* Texas music legend Augie Meyers
* Local favorites Ruben V, Los #3 Dinners, and The Infidels & Patricia Vonne
* Renowned bands George Chambers and the Country Gentlemen, Tennesse Valley Authority, and Twist of Fate Band
* And special surprise guests.
The event will also feature raffle prizes and a silent auction, including gift certificates to local restaurants, music stores, and day spas, plus a treasure trove of music memorabilia;
Young was diagnosed with an advanced stage of melanoma – as he puts it, “The Big C” – in late 2012, and is scheduled to begin chemotherapy soon; since then, he says, “I've been touched by all the love everyone has shown me. Family, friends, colleagues, even strangers – so many people have stepped up to help, from yard sales to this show. I really appreciate it, and I thank them all.”
