Close friends and fellow musicians with ties to the one and only Sheldon ‘Shel Shok’ Benjamin have come together to create an event, aimed at raising funds for the medical expenses of the much touted local producer.

Benjamin, who has created beats for some of the best artistes in the business and has worked with such bands as Atlantik and Machel Montano HD, is currently battling a form of cancer known as Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

Non-Hodgkin lymphomas are treated by combinations of chemotherapy, monoclonal antibodies, immunotherapy, radiation and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.

The event, called LIFELINE, seeks to raise the funds necessary for treatment for Benjamin, with part of the proceeds going towards the Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Society.

LIFELINE, the event, will take place at the world famous Zen nightclub on Sunday, June 7th, 2009.

The cast includes, acclaimed gospel artist Russell Leonce, R&B quartet H2O Phlo, Rocky, Denise Belfon, Barbados soca queen Allison Hinds, Destra Garcia and Machel Montano HD.

LIFELINE will be hosted by Shal Marshall.

Tickets are priced at $150 General Admission; $300 VIP.
