A benefit concert is being held for Mickey Chew, a young business owner who has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Mickey was airlifted to a neurological center in Trenton last weekend and operated on after suffering a seizure. He is now recovering at home while he awaits the next stage of his treatment plan.
Mickey and his wife, musician Kate Delany, opened Big Wave Burritos in Cape May two months ago. Kate is well known as a popular singer at the Rusty Nail restaurant, owned by Cape Resorts Group, and the company is organizing the benefit, at Congress Hall’s Boiler Room on Wednesday, August 4 from 10pm to 1am.
Among the performers will be Carl Behrens, David Rettinger, Doug Coventry and Acoustic Mayhem (featuring the talents of Terry O’Brien and Will Knapp). Tickets are $20 and there will also be a silent auction, with gifts donated by local businesses. Proceeds will go to benefit the couple, who have no health insurance.
“It will be a great event with many of our regular artists performing,” said Jane Mackie of Cape Resorts. “It’s such a tragedy. We wish we could do more.”
Mickey is the son of Sergeant Rusty Chew of Cape May Police Department and Dagmer Chew, owner of HomeStead real estate company.
