Benefit Concert for Montgomery College Student Health and Wellness Center for Success on Saturday, July 17 at the Comus Inn
LOCAL MUSICIAN AND MONTGOMERY COLLEGE STUDENT THROWS BENEFIT CONCERT TO HELP HER SCHOOL’S MOST VULNERABLE STUDENTS
In response to the pandemic’s profound impact on her college community, local musician Bailey Drew Lehfeldt (“Bailey Drew”) has teamed up with Doug Yurechko, the new owner of the historical landmark Comus Inn, to throw a benefit concert for Montgomery College’s Student Health and Wellness Center for Success (the “SHaW” Center). The event will take place on Saturday, July 17, at the Comus Inn in Dickerson, MD from 4:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
All proceeds will benefit the SHAW Center, which identifies students in need and connects them to resources that support success. The SHAW Center is there for the most vulnerable students by providing access to health care, housing, food, mental health support and personal safety support.
Bailey Drew is no stranger to the devastating toll that mental health can take on a person and a community. Having worked through her own struggles and observed personal friends and family in crisis, she saw how the COVID-19 pandemic magnified the challenges for those already struggling in her Montgomery College community.
Realizing the power of healing music can have from her own experience entertaining late-stage Parkinson’s disease and dementia patients at local nursing homes throughout Montgomery County, Bailey Drew hoped she could use her musical talents as a way to support another community near and dear to her heart, Montgomery College.
Bailey Drew will be teaming up with her music partner, Dave Weber, to bring together her college community and the community at large to raise money for this critical resource for her fellow students. Whether you’re a Classic Rock, Country, Motown, Pop Music, or Blues fan, this music duo offers something for everyone from Taylor Swift and twenty one pilots to The Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin, Cold Play, Billy Joel, and Chris Stapleton. Bring the kids and the dogs and play some shuffle-board or corn hole while contributing to a great cause with stunning views of Sugarloaf Mountain. Plus, a delicious and varied menu of food and drinks sure to please all!
