California, MD, May 1, 2020– On Saturday, May 9th, 2020 the Hollywood Volunteer would have held their annual Bluegrass fundraiser at the St. Mary’s Co Fairgrounds. 

Due to the Corona Virus outbreak, it was decided that the safest thing to do would be to cancel the event.  At this time a postponed date has not been planned. Many locals in Southern Maryland have been missing the places to go out and listen to live Bluegrass music.

At this time it is planned to be 3 hours long but seems to be growing.  In the end, will be a special live treat.  The event can be viewed on Facebook at   

During the event, there will be an opportunity to make a donation to the Hollywood Volunteer Rescue Squad’s Building Fund located in Hollywood, MD.
