Background: Amy and Lisa
------------------------
Amy Fedel was 8 years old when her family's van was hit by a drunk driver in the summer of 1998. She died of massive head injuries. Her sister Lisa suffered a closed-head injury and was in a coma for two weeks. She has made a wonderful recovery but still experiences seizures as a result of her head injuries. She is in eleventh grade now and has ambitions to become a stand-up comic. More information on the family can be found at http://www.fedel.com/amyandlisa.

The concert is being produced by the Amy and Lisa Fund. The Fund was established with donations from hundreds of people who read about the family's situation and wanted to help them get back on their feet. The first concert was held in 1999 and helped fund the first year of the Amy Fedel Memorial Reading Program as well as generating donations for MADD. Over the last 6 years, the events have raised over $2,000 for MADD, Brain Injury Association of Michigan, and the Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan.

Sponsors and Involvement
------------------------
We always welcome volunteers for a variety of tasks the night of the show, primarily for setup before and cleanup after. Volunteers can contact Mike Fedel at mfedela2@aol.com.

The concert itself is being produced by the Amy and Lisa Fund. Anyone interested in helping offset the costs is welcome to contact Mike Fedel at mfedela2@aol.com.

We will play tunes that the seniors will remember as they eat their lunch.
