More than 20 bands to play downtown Auburn festival supporting local man with cancer

  • Updated
  • 0

More than 20 live musical acts will donate time and talent for the benefit of Auburn man Art Wenzel at Art's Inhale Music Fest Saturday, March 12.

The festival will span three venues along State Street: A.T. Walley & Co. at 119 Genesee St., Moondog's Lounge at 24 State St. and Prison City Pub & Brewery at 28 State St. The music begins at 1 p.m.

Wenzel, a former journalist, music promoter and benefit organizer, was diagnosed with stage-four renal cell carcinoma in 2015, and it has since spread to his lungs and bones. He recently called on New York state to make its medical marijuana program more accessible and less complicated.

The event will also include a brunch, raffles, door prizes, a 50/50 drawing, an auction and, from 2 to 7 p.m., a chicken barbecue for those who purchase a $20 donation ticket. Contributions and in-kind donations to support the event are also being accepted at Art's Lung Fund, P.O. Box 2204, Auburn, NY 13021.

Advance chicken barbecue tickets are available at Pepper’s Discount Liquor, D & L Truk Stop, Robin’s Hair Care, Hairlooms, A.T. Walley, Moondog’s and Prison City, all in Auburn.

For more information, call Donna Brooks at (315) 730-2156 or Bernie Simmons at (315) 246-9945.
