Musician and hatmaker Charlie Overbey and partner Vanessa Dingwell are raising money to aid the Navajo Nation Reservation hit by COVID-19.
Charlie Overbey is a busy guy, splitting his time between writing and performing music with his band, the Broken Arrows, and making one of a kind hats for musicians, actors, and anyone else who is interested in attaining their own unique, custom-made hat. Charlie and his partner Vanessa Dingwall have joined forces with United Natives and Dr Michelle Tom in order to provide aid to the Navajo Reservation. Various Lone Hawk Hat owners have come together by autographing and donating their hats to be auctioned off to help raise money.
The donated hats will be auctioned on Lone Hawk Hats’ Instagram starting on Friday, May 22.
Overbey explains, “When we learned that the Navajo Nation now has more documented COVID-19 cases per capita than any of the United States and they are not yet receiving U.S. government funding, we knew we had to do something to help.”
In addition to the Lone Hawk Hat charity auction, Overbey will raffle off “This Ol’ Hat,” a vintage hat signed by the Lone Hawk Hat family members.
The list of people who have donated to the auction and “This Ol’ hate” raffle are:
Cree Summer (actress)
Raoul Max Trujillo (actor)
Barry Gibb (Bee Gees)
LP (singer / songwriter)
Nils Lofgren (Crazy Horse / Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band)
