40 acts donating time & talent on two stages at inaugural event
The inaugural fundraiser the Gulf Coast Medical Musicians Fund will be held Oct. 27-28 at Pensacola’s The Point Restaurant (14340 Innerarity Point Rd.) beginning at noon each day. Cover charge is $10 at the door and the event will feature musicians from Florida to Louisiana donating their time and talent on stages inside the restaurant and in the courtyard.
The GCMMF is the brainchild of songwriter/entertainer Webb Dalton (pictured above), and it is now up and running with donations received from local music lovers. Dalton recorded a full gospel album with all CD proceeds going to the fund.

“We all know that musicians normally don’t receive health care so to help with that,’’ Dalton said. “All proceeds pay for doctor visits and high dollar prescriptions. Find out more at the fundraiser.’’
