a new approach to
fundraising for your organization

Concert for a Cause

Nothing brings people together like live music and there’s no better way to raise funds for your cause or organization than a live concert. You can select a live venue, or even have it in the comfort of your own home. Full band or acoustic – cover tunes or original songs.

Together, we can make an impact and have a great time doing it.

what people are saying
about perfectly afflicted

Dr. Nellie P. Aspel

Director of Exceptional Children’s Services Cleveland County Schools

“Each time Chris visits our school system, I am overwhelmed with the intensity of the positive comments I receive from everyone with whom he interacts. I believe that the investment I have made in using Chris Hendricks to teach our staff about empathy, to educate our students about the harms of bullying and to help some of our most challenging students to experience hope through songwriting, has been some of the best money I have ever spent.”

Barry Bryant

Executive Director HopeLine ( 2016 )

“We are so excited that we met Jeff and Chris and became working partners with Perfectly Afflicted. They are the best kind of partner because they are truly altruistic and passionate and they sincerely want to help you reach your goals. They have proven to be very supportive to us in helping us attain vital resources that we need. We look forward to working with them on an upcoming fundraiser and for years to come.”
