HEaRD in WNY: Top shows for the week of Sept. 19 - 25

This week's featured event is Saturday's Benefit For Dale Hinz.

A tireless promoter of local Buffalo bands for many years until, a few years ago Dale’s life totally changed. He was a 31-year-old vibrant and healthy young male with the whole world in front of him. End of 2012 , a reckless driver in a car failed to yield and struck him on his motorcycle and caused him to be thrown. Dale suffered multiple injuries including a severe brain-stem injury Dale is alive but not living the life he should be at his age. Dale went through seven weeks of life support, two months in the trauma unit, and nine months in the hospital. Doctors recommended he be placed in a nursing home due to his need for total care.

Dale’s mom provides him with love and care and is unable to work due to the amount of care and time needed. Dale’s father is often called back home from jobs to assist Dale, and thus loses money. Dale has an older brother who works full time and also helps with Dale’s daily needs. Nursing care has been declined in the home and this role is mainly carried out by his mom. Dale spends his time in either a wheelchair or bed and needs to be fed, cleaned, dressed, and transported to his therapies and doctors daily.

Dale’s parents need more space to allow Dale to live comfortably in his living space. Currently Dale lives with his parents in a one-bedroom trailer which is very confined due to the amount of medical equipment needed for Dale to live. (i.e. Hospital bed, therapy table and IV pole and feeding pump, hoyer lift and wheelchair.) Dale’s father purchased a home to renovate to allow Dale to have his own bedroom and wheelchair accessible bathroom for a roll in shower. Currently Dale can only receive a sponge bath. Due to the exorbitant costs of building a house from a shell, Dale’s parents are seeking money to help with their dream for Dale to have a home where he can live comfortably. Please help make this dream come true for them and please continue to pray for Dale’s progress.

It their genuine hope this event raises a ton of money for Dale and his family. If all you can afford to do is purchase a ticket to the event, which begins at noon on SaturdayAmerican Legion Post # 527 in Hamburg. We appreciate it. His family appreciates it. They have 10 bands on board donating their time for a great cause, bit mostly because they're supporting a great friend. If you can donate a little bit more, thank you. Just know, whatever you can donate, all proceeds will benefit Dale and his family.
