Event will benefit Lyrics for Life's Camp Hazelnut and Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation
Special Acoustic Songwriter in the Round Performances by Sister Hazel, Edwin McCain, and Emerson Hart of Tonic 

Platinum-selling band, Sister Hazel, is set to host the 2017 Lyrics for Life on Sunday, November 5. This marks the first time in the 15 year history of the charities events that the band will host in their hometown of Gainesville, FL. Presented by Rich and Carissa Blaser, the evening event will raise funds for the non-profit charities Lyrics for Life's Camp Hazelnut and Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation as well as with all Lyrics For Life events, STOP Children's Cancer in Gainesville, FL. Attendees will enjoy cocktails and heavy hors d'oeuvres as they browse a star-studded silent auction, featuring items from some of the music industry's biggest names. There will be a very unique and special acoustic songwriter in the round performance by Sister Hazel, Edwin McCain, and Emerson Hart of Tonic. Tickets are $150 and available here.

"Most of us have been touched by it, a loved one, a friend, a co-worker dealing with this disease. Our desire to help comes from a real place, from real loss," said lead singer Ken Block. "It gives us the energy and ambition to fight back. We ARE fighting back! It's a personal mission of ours to foster and create events that are fun, cool, exciting, and ultimately meaningful to this vital cause. Together we can make a real difference."

Lyrics for Life has donated approximately $250k over the years to Gainesville's STOP Children's Cancer Charity. They have also benefited other Cancer Charities around the country including Children's Cancer Center of Tampa and Camp Sunshine in Atlanta.
