|The 6th annual Apocalypse Meow was held on Nov. 1 at Midwestern Musical Co. and Nov. 2 at Knuckleheads Saloon and was a huge success. Apocalypse Meow was able to raise more than $12K for Abby's Fund assisting in musicians' emergency health care needs.||Check out the new Midwest Music Foundation Merchandise page. We have a new order of merchandise going out on November 29th. If you weren't able to get a shirt or hoodie at Apocalypse Meow 6 - now is the time.|
|Midwest Music Foundation is proud of our inclusion this quarter in the Boulevard 10% for KC program. From October 1st to December 31st, 10% of the total sales of KC Pils beer will go into a fund to be split between us and two other charities. Online voting will take place at the end of December and the winner gets 60% of the fund. We would really appreciate the votes as this program offers a chance to nearly double our operating budget for the year. We will have more information on special voting events as the date gets closer.||
||Our hearts and thoughts go out to the loved ones of Abigail Henderson, who recently passed away after a long, courageous battle with cancer. Abby and her husband Chris Meck co-founded Midwest Music Foundation in 2008 when she was originally diagnosed. We thank her for her countless contributions to foster the community and create a support system for musicians, and are proud to carry on these goals. Please enjoy this amazing video from Abby and Chris' band Tiny Horse. Donations to Midwest Music Foundation are always appreciated. Michelle Bacon wrote a nice memoriam at The Deli Magazine for Abigail.
