TIMKo "Chips" in

Being a family friend of the Delvaux family, Tim realized that he could use his experience to “chip” in with the growing medical expenses of baby Cora.  

Using his skills in music event planning and his vast network of local musicians, he was happy to help a family that was dealing with a financial crunch that no family should ever have to deal with.
