“Celebration of Determination” Concert Featuring Gypsy Rose Band will Help Ashley Herman with Medical Expenses

MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) – A special “Celebration of Determination” featuring the Gyspy Rose Band will be held for Marshfield teen Ashley Herman on Saturday, August 14 from 4pm-10pm.

In January of 2021, Ashley was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is a blood cancer that starts in the lymphatic system which helps the immune system fight infections.

The popular Gypsy Rose Band is coming out of retirement to put on a show to celebrate the real rock stars: the Herman family! The event will take place at Outer Limits, 109300 County Road C in Spencer.

“I’m beyond grateful for everyone’s love and support,” said Ashley. “It truly keeps me positive and pushing forward.”

The event will feature outdoor music (good old street dance style, rain or shine!) and there will be raffles and other fundraising opportunities. New custom t-shirts will be available for purchase. Admission is a $5 donation required at the door. Shirts can also be ordered online here.

“We hope everyone can come and enjoy a great evening of music and fundraising,” said Trisha Mayer, event chair.

Those wishing to donate money or raffles are welcome to drop them off at Weiler’s Convenience Store location at 2005 N Central Avenue. All funds will be donated to Ashley to help her afford treatment.
