Zach Cardwell, a graduate and valedictorian of the University of Indianapolis, talented musician and teacher, was the victim of random gun violence last year. Zach is using music and conversations about gun violence to work his way back from this tragic and horrific experience.
He is courageous and open about his experience and invites you to join with him and his friends and family in celebration of his transition from crime victim to champion. This community event will be on Sunday, April 9, from 3-4:15 at Trinity Episcopal Church, 3242 North Meridian Street, Indianapolis.
This concert/fundraiser will feature music by Zach and other talented Indianapolis musicians. Performances include those by Trinity Choir, Doug Dilling, Leah Crane, Joey Purifoy, Michael Messina, Charles Webb, Tyler Webb, Christopher Freeze, and Colette Abel.
Admission is $10 per person (with larger donations gratefully accepted). 100% of proceeds will go directly to Zach. More information @ A New Leaf for Zach: Giving Back Through Music & Conversation. Also see Go Fund Me @ A New Leaf For Zach
Your presence will help defray his huge medical costs, as well as unite as a community against gun violence.
