VIDEO HERE: Live music for a good cause
KJ Reimensnyder and Kim Reichley perform ‘You’ve Got a Friend’ live on WKOK Sunrise
LEWISBURG – Hearts have been heavy for those who know Dr. Michael Baker. The Lewisburg chiropractor was recently diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Erica Shames, publisher of Susquehanna Life Magazine, is a friend of Baker. “I was just devastated when I heard the news, just like a lot of people,” says Shames. “I kept thinking what I could do and when I learned that he didn’t have medical insurance at the time I thought about starting a fund.”
Since the diagnosis, Shames say Baker has gotten medical insurance, but never had it before because he was always more worried about others than he was of himself. A fundraiser is coming up for Baker, which will include a lot of live music.
KJ Reimensnyder-Wagner is one of the creators of The Concert for Mike Baker. “I thought about how I could give my talent and time. Then, as they always do, my musician friends came through and said they would love to do it.”
Along with Reimensnyder-Wagner, nine additional musicians or bands will be playing. The concert is Saturday in the Weis Center lobby on the campus of Bucknell University. Doors open at 1:30p.m. and the show starts at 2:00p.m. Admission is free, but donations to Baker’s medical fund are encouraged. For more information call 570-522-0149. (Sara Bartlett)
