Lenz Music, a division of Lenz, Inc., recently raised $5,190 for two Atlanta non-profit cancer organizations—the Georgia Cancer Foundation and the Magic of Life Foundation—at a benefit concert held at Eddie’s Attic in downtown Decatur. Proceeds will be split equally between the two organizations.
The sellout show was headlined by Johnny Clash—a band comprised of Lenz president/CEO Richard Lenz, marketing director Michael Killeen, art director Scott Sanders, and honorary Lenz director of security, Shawn Vinson.
“It is so gratifying to me and our entire company that so many of our friends, family, clients, and contacts would lend their time and money to this important cause,” Lenz said. “In today’s economic climate, non-profit organizations need our support more than ever, and these two groups are quite deserving.”
Nathan Beaver, a marketing manager at Lenz, opened the show with an acoustic set, and Lenz marketing director Michael Killeen performed with his band, the Sweethearts.
The event featured a silent auction with items contributed by the AJC Decatur Book Festival, the City of Decatur, Georgia Shakespeare, Little Shop of Stories, Worthmore Jewelry, John Lenz of the Tall Rocker Company, Wade Medlock, Alice Murray, and Vinson Gallery.
Lenz would like to thank everyone who attended the event and participated in the silent auction; Bob Ephlan and Eddie Owen of Eddie’s Attic for hosting the event; and The Magic of Life Foundation Board of Directors and Rudy Morgan of the Georgia Cancer Foundation for their support through the years.
