Jackson Browne Joins David Crosby, Graham Nash and Others in Maui Van Signing for Ruth’s Ride Benefit
“This is a game-changer – a life-changer,” said Robert “Bobalou” Benavides, who was standing next to a brand-new wheelchair-accessible van outside of the David Crosby and Graham Nash concert at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center on Aug. 29th.
The license plate on the van, “Ruth’s Ride,” conveyed the meaning of the star-studded evening; this benefit concert was special – Crosby and Nash were performing to fund an accessible van for Benavides’ beloved 10-year-old daughter, Ruth, who is physically challenged.
The music was almost secondary to the feeling of charity — almost. Crosby and Nash shared new music and old favorites, some of which were written here in Hawaii. They welcomed special guest Jackson Browne, who played a few songs before being joined onstage by Crosby, Nash and Cruz.
