New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Sister Hazel hosted their Fourth Annual Camp Hazelnut at Camp Crystal Lake outside Gainesville, FL October 19 - 21, 2018. The camp provides an uplifting experience for youth and families navigating the overwhelming challenges of cancer diagnosis. Over the three days around 175 campers from all over Florida, including 30 families of kids with cancer, embarked on a great exploration to discover (or rediscover!) the magic that can only be created at summer camp.
The band was proud to partner again this year with Wyc Grousbeck, CEO, Governor, and co-owner of the Boston Celtics, and Emilia Fazzalari to make the experience even more special for children and their families.
This year brought even more fun for the children, band, and families with the addition of a water carnival on Sunday that included a inflatables, water slides, dunk tank, cotton candy, sno-cones, popcorn, and face painting. The Lyrics for Life luau on the beach also returned featuring a Sister Hazel "Sunset Acoustic" performance. Each child at camp received a special gift bag including Sister Hazel merchandise, a tumbler cup donated by MyBevi, and an iPad courtesy of Wyc Grousbeck and Emilia Fazzalari. Everyone feasted on delicious food donated by Bluewater Bay.
Camp Hazelnut is part of the Lyrics for Life Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer. Sister Hazel frontman, Ken Block, and his band mates founded Lyrics For Life in memory of Ken's younger brother Jeffrey, who ultimately lost his four-year battle with cancer that started at age 14. Jeffrey and his memory continue to change many lives.

About Sister Hazel:
Originating from Gainesville, FL, Sister Hazel is comprised of five gifted, seasoned musicians whose well-spring of natural talent has been called "one of the Top 100 Most Influential Independent Performers of the last 15 years" by Performing Songwriter Magazine. Song "All for You," topped the adult alternative charts during the summer of 1997 and the success propelled their album to platinum status. In their first showing on the country music charts they made a strong debut with "Lighter In The Dark" at #4 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart, #6 on Billboard's Independent Albums chart, #30 on Billboard's Top Current Albums chart and #79 on the Billboard 200 album chart. The band landed on Billboard's Top Country Albums Chart again in 2016 with "Unplugged From Daryl's House Club" at #75. In February 2018, "Water," Volume I of a collectible compilation series titled, "Elements," hit the Billboard Country Albums chart at #9 and at #2 on Billboard's Independent Albums chart along with making their debut on the most revered stage in country music, the Grand Ole Opry. Volume II of Elements titled "Wind" debuted at #1 on iTunes in September 2018 and at #11 on Billboard Independent Chart, #16 on Billboard Americana/Folk Chart, and #5 on Billboard's Country Album Sales chart. Living up to their fan-centered reputation, the band was a pioneer in the themed cruise industry by co-founding "The Rock Boat" and annually hosts events like the "Hazelnut Hang," and "Camp Hazelnut" that focuses on creating unique experiences and interacting with the fans. Sister Hazel has been equally attentive to connecting with their audience through social media having amassed over a million social followers. In addition to the events and touring, the band also gives back with "Lyrics For Life." Founded by singer Ken Block, the charity unites musicians and celebrities for concerts and auctions to benefit cancer research and patient-care charities.
