Sherri Woodstock

A new blog has been set up to promote Sherri Woodstock.

The one-day music fest on Sunday, Oct. 5 will celebrate the life of Sherri Wood, the Toronto Sun concert reviewer who died of brain cancer last March at 28.

It is 11 days and counting to The Opera House music fest, running from 4:30 p.m. to whenever and the $20 tickets are moving fast.

Bands on tap: Classic Albums Live (performing Led Zeppelin), Five Blank Pages, The Little Millionaires, Dani Strong, The Overtones and Franky Moonlight.

Buy your tickets here. Proceeds from the concert will be donated to the Sherri Wood Memorial Fund.

The "family" in Toronto Sun Family was highlighted once again a few days ago when Sun staffers Peter Worthington, Joe Warmington, Brett Clarkson, Michele Mandel, Jonathan Jenkins, and Alan Shanoff donated the $1,000 they won in June at the Sun Media Dunlop Awards to the Sherri Wood Memorial Fund.

They won the Dunlop for joint coverage of the Conrad Black trial.

You've got to be 19 and over to attend the seven-plus hour Sherri Woodstock because The Opera House, at 735 Queen Street East, is licensed, but there is no age limit on donating to the cause.

Amy Doary at MuchMusic, who worked with Sherri on concert assignments, has just posted a countdown update on the fest blog.

You can also follow the countdown on the Sherri Wood Facebook page.
