The Tommy Brull Foundation proudly presents the 2013 Shine a Light Music Festival. The Tommy Brull Foundation is a Rockville Centre-based non-profit organization dedicated to raising money to benefit people with physical, mental, and emotional challenges. The show was created to remember and celebrate Tommy Brull, a counselor at Camp Anchor who died in an accident 13 years ago.

Organizers say that the artists, such as alt-country rockers Deer Tick, performing represent music that Tommy loved — and would have loved. The Shine a Light Music Festival is a benefit show, and 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the new Camp Anchor building, which will be completed in June. The foundation is also celebrating the fact that the building’s auditorium will be dedicated in Tommy’s memory.

Come and help the Tommy Brull Foundation reach its goal of raising $60,000 for the building. Doors open at 7 p.m., tickets are limited so reserve your spot now.
