Follypalooza Cancer Benefit & Street Festival

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 14, 2014 by Lowcountry Boil

E294325_10150315415577167_1136950041_nntering into its seventh year, Follypalooza, an annual cancer benefit and street festival will be held on Saturday, October 18th from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Folly Beach, SC. In addition to live music, other attractions include a dunk tank, children’s games and activities, arts and crafts, food vendors, a silent auction.  Entrance to the event is free, tickets for games and activities can be purchased on Center Street throughout the day.

In the last six years, the non-profit organization has been successful in raising over $35,000 for local cancer patients. To date, the funds raised have helped more than 20 individuals alleviate financial stress caused by impeding medical bills. Two of these recipients, Mechelle Neunsinger and Nathan Calhoun, are now cancer survivors, thanks to the help of the community and the funds raised by Follypalooza.

All recipients of funds raised at the event are screened by the Folly Angels, another Folly Beach non-profit that dedicates time to helping people in the community. The Folly Angels are a long-standing philanthropic-oriented group who have been great partners in identifying and verifying cancer patients in need, and also keeping recipients anonymous, if they so choose.

487670_10150955285277167_1426188128_nFollypalooza raises money through the sale of various sponsorships, a silent auction, 50/50 drawing, carnival games, kids activities and t-shirts. This year’s event will feature all of the above, plus local food and art vendors, live music and more. The City of Folly Beach has approved the closure of Center Street between Ashley and Hudson Avenues as well as the relaxation of open container laws within designated areas allowing for a carefree and fun day for all.

This year’s live music will feature all local Charleston bands including Travelin’ Kine, Jamisun, Hick Child Soup, Calhoun’s Calling, Don’t Mess with the Tiger, Sweet T & Chuckwagon and more TBA.

Follypalooza was started in 2008 by DJ Rich of Planet Follywood and managers of the former Conch restaurant when a local restaurant owner and musician were diagnosed with cancer and undergoing expensive and intensive treatment. In its first year, the event raised $3,000 for the two individuals and also brought light to the immense range of cancer patients who needed help. It was decided that Follypalooza would become an annual event, raising money for local cancer patients in need.

The Y’all Entertainment Launch Party is set for Sunday, July 29 at Home Team BBQ at 1205 Ashley River Road in West Ashley. It should be an awesome night with a house band featuring Danielle Howle, Luke Cunningham, Mac Leaphart, Reid Stone, Tyler Mechem & lots of special guests TBA, as well as the first local full-band performance by The Tarlatans, a band originally from Clemson that is about to crash the Charleston scene. This is an FREE all-ages show, open to the public & sponsored by Virgil Kaine Bourbon.

Ya’ll Entertainment is a new joint venture between Joel Frank and Ben Bounds that will help artists, festival coordinators, music venues, university organizations and other folks in the music and entertainment industry find creative ways to organize and promote their events and careers.

“Initially, I wanted to do a small event to bring together the local music community, “said Joel Frank. “I have found a passion working with the music community.”

Along with celebrating a new company, this should be a party where great music will be made!
