For a Good Cause

For a Good Cause, originally uploaded by BigSkyKatie.

My cousin, Tim Ryan, Nashville song writer and recording artist, returns home to the Mission Valley each year, putting on a benefit golf tournament and Writer’s Night at the Mission Valley Country Club to raise money for the Mission Valley Scholarship Fund.

This year’s event was held July 17. The Writer’s Night portion of the event was somewhat different from usual this year. Usually Tim has, as his guests, Nashville songwriters who sing songs that they wrote that were hits for other recording artists and tell the audience about the inspiration of the song, how the song came to be, etc. This year the band Exile, recently reunited, performed an acoustic set.

As always, it was a great night of song.

For those of you who have landed here looking for the date of the 2012 Benefit (and site metrics tell me that’s a frequent query), the date for the 2012 (and last) event is Friday, July 13, 2012.
