All proceeds supported the Mikey Dee Musician’s Benefit Trust established to assist with medical and living expenses while Mikey recovers from a devastating brainstem stroke suffered on Feb 7, 2000. The entire event raised $eleanor,000. The Trust’s long-term goal is to provide fund assistance for other musicians who suffer catastrophic events.
