About Us!
​   Ben Walls Memorial Jam, Inc. is an official 501(c)(3). We are a non-profit organization raising money to assist individuals battling cancer. Our name describes our big annual fund raiser. It's a big, all day jam session with many talented musicians, a silent auction, crawfish, and just a great time for a great cause! Your donations are tax deductible!

Ben Walls was known and loved by many, many people. He enjoyed the downtown scene, loved to sail, loved his wife, Noretta, and life in general. Unfortunately, his life was cut short due to stage 4 Colon Cancer. Our first "Jam" was an effort to give Ben and Noretta a little financial relief after having to deal with this for two years. Sadly, Ben lost his battle, but Noretta was determined to continue on, making this an annual event to help other people fighting cancer. So, here we are! Please support us! See our "This Year's Jam" and "Contact Us" tabs for more information about this year's event, and to see how you can help make it a success!
