Jemez Springs event to raise funds for veterans

-A A +A
By Tris DeRoma

Fun, food and music will take over Jemez Springs Saturday, as 11 bands will help the community raise funds to help homeless veterans.

The event is sponsored by Homeless Veterans No Mas, an organization started by local radio personality Dotie Brown, Larry Waisner, Don Conger and others.

The concerts, which cost $5 for adults and $2 for children, will raise money to support the Fisher House Organization.

The organization’s goal is to raise money for Fisher house, an organization that provides nearby housing for families who have veterans hospitalized at a Veteran’s Administration hospital.

Homeless Veterans No Mas is trying to raise $25,000 to help get a “Fisher House” built near the Raymond G. Murphy VA Medical Center in Albuquerque.

The concerts will be on two stages, the main one, which will feature acts at the Jemez Valley Community Center, and the other stage, which will feature more acoustic acts at the town’s gazebo.

Homeless Veterans No Mas started in earnest over an experience Waisner had with a friend, who also happened to be a veteran. While Waisner kept up with his friend through the years, there came a day when someone contacted him to tell him that his friend had died of exposure.

“He had died because he was homeless,” Brown said.
