FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) --Local blues bands are playing a marathon concert right now to help an organ donor in need.
Richie Blue donated a portion of his liver to help another local woman battling liver disease.
But since Blue is a musician, friends and family are raising money for his family while he takes time off.
Friends say the two are doing well but will need a few months to recover.
"Her liver was failing, she needed a new liver and she went through several donors that didn't pan out and finally one of our local blues musicians stepped up and he was a match," musician Jim "Gumbo" Furnas said.
So to raise money, local blues bands are playing a marathon event at Fulton 55.
It's located at the corner of Divisadero and Fulton Avenues and they're hoping to play throughout the evening.
