More than 200 people were in attendance for the Blues for Hospice and Bike and Poker Run held recently at the War Vets on Fluvanna Avenue in Jamestown. Charlie Clark, coordinator of the event, presented Hospice Chautauqua County with a check for $1,860. This makes a grand total for four years of more than $7,000.
According to Clark, the activities throughout the day kept motorcycle enthusiasts and blues fans entertained, and he was grateful to the War Vets Committee for hosting the festival.
"The community was thankful for the opportunity of spending a day that was centered on the entire family, while at the same time, benefiting one of our community's greatest assets, Hospice Chautauqua County," he said.

The bands donated their time for a great cause, and a thank you goes out to Austin Anderson, Blue Magoo, Red Letter Blues and the Spellcasters for an enjoyable array of blues music. There were many other people to thank for their time volunteering the day of the event along with participating to ensure Hospice Chautauqua County can continue the care they give every day.
Hospice Chautauqua County ensures that people in the community receive the advanced therapies they deserve. They appreciate the kindness others do to ensure this happens, with outside fundraising events like these.
