I had forgotten this story after Isabel about Jimmy sending his planes in with hurricane relief items.

Aaron as one of the Reefers For the Night would be incredible...

I didn't pay 3000.00 just to see Jimmy, It was my "business" contribution to help people I knew affected by the hurricanes.

HURRICANE BENEFIT

Post by GEED181 »

In the past, Jimmy has done small benefit concerts in West Palm on the beach at the Breakers to benefit his local charities. The first one benefited his kids school, The Academy of the Palm Beaches and tickets were 1000.00 each and only 500 were made available, which included dinner and Jimmy in the sand with the beach band for 2 1/2 hours. The next was a benefit for alzheimers after his dad died and was 750.00 each and 1000 tickets were available, dinner included. I was fortunate to be able to attend both and am spoiled now, plus, most of the money made its way directly to the charities. Jimmy is more approachable at these venues and even had audience participation on stage. Jimmy actually walked through the crowd after the first concert, as well as the rest of the band, so it was easy to get autographs and pictures. I was fortunate to spend a few hours with Utley the next day at the pool and get EVERYONES autograph and small talk....Don't pass on this if he decides to do it again...plus it is for a good cause...
