Memorial Funds

Gary Ingber Memorial Fund

The Gary Ingber Memorial Fund was created by the Orange Blossom Blues Society in April 2008 in honor of our dear friend, Gary Ingber, who passed away in February 2008. The mission of the fund is to offer modest financial aide in a timely and practical manner to any deserving area musician (or their immediate survivors.). The range of assistance is from $100 - $500 and the types of assistance that will be considered are medical, prescriptions due to illness,accident, emergency needs and burial/final expenses.

The fund is available to active, professional musicians (or an immediate survivor) in the Central Florida area. A recipient does not have to be an OBBS member toreceive funds, but requests for assistance must come from an OBBS member. Assistance is limited to one application per musician each six months, or a one-time request for funeral expenses.
