Update!! The 2019 Justin Tournament was another big success. We are proud to say that we have been able to donate $1400 to Mike Ball and his Lost Voices Organization!
I am leaving the below text up so that everyone has an idea of what the tournament is all about.
We are so grateful to everyone who participated and we can't wait for next year!!
The Justin Tournament is now in its 11th year. The participants and the people of Kelleys Island have been an amazing support.
Our hearts are grateful and our desire now is to honor Justin's memory by finding ways to pay it forward.
This year, The Justin has partnered in supporting Lost Voices. For more than eleven years, the professional folk and blues musicians of Lost Voices have been helping kids who have experienced major emotional trauma; such as abuse, neglect, violence, addiction, and human trafficking; find hope and healing through music.
