When I first started planning Blue Gypsy Bluesfest I knew it was a big undertaking. But I also knew it was for a good cause, and in the end it would be a lot of fun.

One of the best parts about owning my own business is deciding how I’m going use my energy and achieve great things.

It was a little over three months ago that I decided I wanted to throw a huge party that would benefit Habitat for Humanity. At first I was hoping to have it at the Norfolk Zoo, but that didn’t quite work out as I had hoped and I found an even better location, Hunt Club Farm in Virginia Beach.

The great thing about this venue and this idea is that it’s an event that anyone can come to. It’s not a closed real estate party though it started for that group of individuals near and dear to my heart who never really get a day off. It’s not just for people who love the Blues. Come play Cornhole and enjoy some kickin’ BBQ provided by Mick’s Too and Mojo Bones. This is a day of musical fun for individuals, couples, families and friends.

And the best part is that is supports two great charities. Habitat for Humanity South Hampton Roads and Natchel’ Blues Network.

Though I’m planning this event, mostly on my own, I never quite feel that way because with each person and group I talk with they have 3 more contacts or ideas for me to explore. It’s amazing the coming together of help and hope that happens with an event like this.

I hope you’ll come out and support this great cause while enjoying a day of fun at the same time!
