Keel Poster Supports the American Stroke Association
We hope you will join us for our Saint Patrick’s Day show with Larry Keel Experience w. Jon Stickley Trio. Grab your tickets today and make sure you pick up a poster to remember your time with us and these incredible performers. Artwork courtesy of Matt Browning of Catfish Navigation Creative Co. $5 of every poster sale will be donated to the American Stroke Association to support their ongoing efforts including their work to raise awareness of the signs of a stroke.
It is important to recognize the signs of a stroke so that you can quickly get care for a person suffering from a stroke. When it comes to a stroke, you can use the acronym F.A.S.T to help you remember the symptoms or signs of an individual who is having a stroke.

“The American Stroke Association, launched in 1998 as the AHA’s Stroke Division, is driven by people power. That means millions of volunteers and donors are working to ensure equitable health care in all communities, funding innovative research, advocating for the public’s health and providing lifesaving resources. Every day, the actions of the ASA are a powerful force in ensuring that mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, daughters and sons who have a stroke get timely, optimal care, support, essential rehabilitative services and more. Speed is an ever-present priority in the ASA’s work — from teaching the public to recognize strokes F.A.S.T. and call for help, to comprehensive systems-of-care initiatives that can shave off hours, minutes and seconds between when a stroke starts and when patients receive the therapies most likely to help them.”
Please consider purchasing a poster to support their work, or head to their website where you can donate time or money to help further their mission.

Through initiatives such as this one with the American Stroke Association we provide donation support to other organizations and bring money back into our own community by partnering with local artists to create unique artwork or with local musicians to deliver memorable experiences.
