Scott Sharrard at The Cock 'n Bull Restaurant - donating 50 percent of poster sales to Crossroads Center for Children

May 17, 2018

We are always so thankful to our community for the awesome and kind help we receive.  And our community just became a whole lot bigger, thanks to Rick Sleeper, owner of the Cock ‘n Bull Restaurant in Galway, NY, and Scott Sharrard, https://www.scottsharrard.com/ a musical icon who is performing at the restaurant four times this year.

American musician Scottt Sharrard is “widely known as the lead guitarist and musical director of the Gregg Allman Band. A prolific songwriter and talented singer, he has also released several soul-influenced albums of his own including three with his first band, The Chesterfields, followed by three solo albums and, most recently, the eponymous release by his current band, Scott Sharrard & the Brickyard Band, in 2013,” says Wikipedia. He is bringing his talents and energy to upstate New York’s The Cock ‘n Bull and is scheduled for four dates this year (below). In planning for his trip upstate, he and his manager, Jesse Guglielmo, CEO & Founder of We Save Music LLC, talked to Rick Sleeper about an idea to help a local non-profit of Rick’s choosing.

For those who might want a little back-story, Rick has donated endlessly in funds and in kind year after year to Crossroads. He has volunteered over and over to help, from hanging bulletin and white boards to bringing in his dogs for visits, including Tugg, who visited us with Matt in the 2016-17 school year. Rick, his family and his Cock ‘n Bull team members all are greatly supportive of Crossroads, the kids, staff, work and mission.  As a very long-term supporter of the school, Rick selected Crossroads Center for Children to be Scott’s very grateful recipient.

When Jesse Guglielmo recently notified Crossroads of this arrangement, we couldn’t be more excited! Not only are we grateful for the help with our fund-development, but also for the added awareness of our school and cause that will result from this exposure.
