We raise money for our patient fund through live events and fund drives. Our sister organization, Ticked Off Music Fest, has been hosting Lyme disease benefit concerts around the U.S. since 2013. The goal of the concert series in general is to drive awareness, give tips on prevention, and to educate on the many symptoms of the diseases. It is to also raise funds for Lyme patients in crisis.

Ticked Off Music Fest partnered with Lyme Warrior to present… Ticked Off Richmond! All of the proceeds (we raised $6k) went to Lyme disease research and patient funding that was handled jointly and directly by both Lyme Warrior and the Ticked Off Foundation, Inc. Both organizations are 501(c)3 nonprofit groups dedicated to bringing awareness and support to those who suffer from Lyme and tick-borne diseases.
The live event took place on Friday, February 2, 2018 at the Canal Club located at 1545 East Cary St., Richmond, VA.
Featured music acts were Brickwall Jackson, an Americana band led by songwriter/guitarist Johnny Hudak, that is bringing Americana rock to new levels. When lead vocalist Suzie “MoJo” Johnson, bassist Chuck Harrell, drummer Rod “Sticks” Hicks and keyboardist Sam Nixon team with band founder and guitarist singer/songwriter Johnny Hudak’s brisk, insistent acoustic and rock-tinged electric numbers, the result is a powerful and innovative blend of uniquely American music.
Also appearing was Gregg Kirk, lead vocalist of The Zen Engines and founder of the Ticked Off Foundation, Inc., a Lyme patient group dedicated to helping those in crisis. Kirk has played and spoken on behalf of Lyme patients since recovering from the disease himself, and he has appeared at events in Hawaii, Florida, California, Maryland, Maine, and Delaware.
