Bands On The Bay Benefit

Reprinted from South River Source:
Head over to Herrington Harbour this Sunday, April 28th for the 8th annual Bands on the Baybenefit concert.
Davidsonville families the Hecks and DeCesaris created Bands on the Bay after Ed and Ida Heck’s daughter Jenna was diagnosed with Sturge-Weber. The disorder is characterized by a port wine birthmark and neurological abnormalities in the brain, skin and eyes which can lead to long-term health issues including seizures and glaucoma.

The event raises funds for the the Hunter Nelson Sturge-Weber Center at Kennedy Krieger Institute. To date, Bands on the Bay has raised $985,000 which directly supports the creation of new research positions, treatment for Sturge-Weber patients without medical insurance and clinical research projects.
