Lynden Lyme Benefit Show

All things fashion aside, I want to encourage everyone in our community to attend a fundraiser being held this Friday, July 13th. Lynden Eckery is a friend, fiancé, Occupational Therapist and all around lovely lady who contracted Lyme disease over the past year. She has faced difficult neurological symptoms due to Lyme disease and the co-infection Babesia, along with a multitude of viral infections.

With high costs of treatment and medical bills adding up, local musicians UUVVWWZ, Dim Light, Solid Goldberg and Dads have been kind enough to come together to help raise money for Lynden in her time of need. The Lynden Lyme Benefit Show will take place this Friday, July 13th at The Waiting Room at 7 p.m. Admission cost is $7. To learn more and donate online, visit
