Heidi Newfield : We Are Our Brothers Keeper , Music For MS

It’s a cause that’s near and dear to her heart, and she’s using her talents to make a difference.

Heidi Newfield will take the stage Thursday, April 19, at 3rd and Lindsley to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis. It will be a night of entertainment beginning with songwriters in the round before Newfield takes the stage. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door, and can be purchased at www.3rdandlindsley.com. The show starts at 6 p.m. with the doors opening at 5 p.m.
The theme of the event is “We are our brother’s keeper.” Newfield, her band and the songwriters are donating their time for the event, and all funds raised will go to the National MS Society’s Mid South Chapter.
Newfield has a personal connection to MS. Her mother fought MS until she passed away in 2004. Since then, Newfield has been very active in the MS community, raising awareness and hope to fight the disease.
“We are grateful to have someone as talented as Heidi in our corner fighting MS,” said Stacy Mulder, Mid South Chapter President. “The show is going to be fantastic, and knowing that all of the entertainers are donating their time for this cause, will make it even better. You don’t want to miss it.”
Headquartered in Nashville, the Mid South Chapter of the MS Society supports nearly 9,000 MS patients in the state of Tennessee and parts of Mississippi, Arkansas and Georgia. It raises millions of dollars a year to fund research and provide services for local clients, in hopes to soon see a world free of multiple sclerosis. Made up of a 50-state network, the National MS Society is a driving force of research and treatment to stop disease activity and progression, restore function lost to MS and end the devastating effects of MS for good.
More than 400,000 people in the United States and 2.5 million worldwide have MS. One person every hour is diagnosed. Multiple Sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis.
