LOWELL - The sun finally broke free from the clouds, and the September social scene got into high gear on Sept. 7, when prominent and respected Lowell attorney Michael Gallagher hosted a Musical Benefit Gathering at his law firm, Gallagher & Cavanaugh, at The Gaslight Building. This fun and unique gathering helped benefit two remarkable organizations - Tunefoolery Music and Mental Health Association of Greater Lowell.
More than 125 music aficionados, supporters and community leaders sipped complimentary wines and nibbled on an abundance of tasty treats catered by the popular and professional team from Catering by Erin McMahon. Fun-loving guests took advantage of the patio and deck overlooking historic downtown Lowell, and a spectacular scene of climbing green ivy that covered an adjacent building.
The deck was rocking when talented Tunefoolery musician Amy Elizabeth joined Executive Director Jens Rybo on the guitar with a sing-along, including guests, to the tune "Let it Shine."
According to Michael, Tunefoolery Music is a Boston-based organization for more than 60 musicians, all of whom are in mental-health recovery. The musicians of Tunefoolery are committed to personal and artistic growth. They perform more than 175 gigs every year, reaching out to thousands of people in the Lowell area and beyond.
The Mental Health Association of Greater Lowell has served Lowell area since the 1950s. The services MHA provides for individuals with serious mental illness result in some of the best outcomes in the state for rehospitalizations, community tenure and employment.
