In 2010, Kristy founded Triad Musicians Matter. Triad Musicians Matter, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit corporation created for the purpose of providing Triad North Carolina musicians and their families financial support in cases of sudden illness, hospitalization, accident, death, or displacement from home due to fire or natural disasters. In many cases in a community, it’s the musicians who are the first to offer their time and talents to help raise funds for many worthy local and global causes. It is the purpose of Triad Musicians Matter to be a vehicle to which the community can give back to those generous and artistic people when they themselves are in need.   If you'd like to donate, please go to the Official Triad Musicians Matter Website.  Thanks.
