Hawk Mountain Sanctuary near Kempton will host The Road to Recovery concert fundraiser on May 28.
Eight musical acts will perform from noon to 5 p.m. in the sanctuary’s amphitheater, and the entrance fee is a donation to support chain saw artist Todd Gladfelter and his ongoing recovery from partial paralysis.
Visitors are encouraged to bring a camp chair or blanket, and food will be available to purchase.
Performers will include Keith Brintzenhoff, Crow Hill, Luke Hertzog, Texas Rose Band, Big Valley Bluegrass, The Youngers, Dave Kline & The Mountain Folk Band, a presentation by Todd’s son Bryce Gladfelter, a song by the spring class of Hawk Mountain trainees, the singing of “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” and a finale jam featuring Todd, Dave Kline and other musicians.
Gladfelter, who fell from a roof in November, was commissioned in late 2019 to create works of art for Hawk Mountain’s new outdoor amphitheater, organizers said.
He crafted multiple replicas of 32 species of native Appalachian wildlife, organizers said.
Those unable to attend can mail a check made out to Cindy Ross at 85 Red Mountain Lane, New Ringgold, PA 17960. For more information on the event: 610-756-6961.
Access the sanctuary off Route 895 in Schuylkill County.
