Nicky’s Celebration: Fundraisers & Benefits

Thank you everyone. It’s time to help some Key West children & their families that need some relief/resources. I love ALL of you for any & all help spreading the word of the cause of & this details of this benefit show to support the cause.

Having lost Nicky Wayne Sorbelli, our 10yr old son, after fighting blood cancer so bravely for a year, that seemed like 10, this is a top shelf priority for me & my family. I like to kick cancer in the teeth every chance I get.

It’s all so painful for Jamie & I & my dear daughter Leela – but at the end of the day – we’ve either helped, or we didn’t – but no matter the pain, the mental low LOW points, the tears, envy, jealousy, survivor guilt, guilt of the NEVER ending urge to block my bad memories in ways that are very destructive & debilitating to my mind body & soul & destructive to my family unit – I AM In this for life – I’ll help fight cancer & those fighting as long as I can in life & til death and perhaps even beyond if I can figure out how.

Click the link to buy tickets directly from the Key West Theater Box Office on Eaton Street.

Pls use this QR code below to make a direct donation to Nicky’s Celebration, Inc 501c Non-profit . Proceeds help local children fighting pediatric cancers & their families.

Nicky’s Celebration 2020 would be at at Geiger Key Marina sometime in September – if NOT STILL  dealing with the COVID19 issues here in the Florida Keys.

Hopefully like last year we’ll have a kayak and stand-up paddle board adventure with daylong live music food and family fun . As well as my personal favorite – the kayak & SUP ukulele jam that includes waterproof ukulele and instruction.  ALL MONEY Raised will go to a charity that Nicky loved. (directly to other kids’ & there families who are fighting the battle – CANCER.)   Pls contact me for more info or check back here as I will be updating this page as the event takes life.

  1. We bought the beautiful Luna guitar at the Smoking Tuna fundraising event in June. Sending positive thoughts to you.

  2. Prayers and best wishes are going out to you and your family. I lived up the street from you on Washington Terrace, Hughestown and visited your store in Pittston on many occasions. Best of luck. Stay strong.

  3. Good evening whomever is reading this! This is David Ihlefeld. I’d really like to get in contact with someone about a claim that was made by someone saying they were going to donate proceeds to your cause. Just to verify that they really did and that they didn’t lie and steal money. If you could give me a call or reach back to my email that be great! Thank you
