Big Money and Benefits

Posted by on September 7 at 10:32 AM

Good news from some Seattle groups already bringing in big money for various hurricane relief charities: Bumbershoot raised over $30,000. Photographer Charles Peterson raised over $17,000 in 72 hours by selling a limited edition of his Nirvana prints. And new shows keep getting announced. Jazz fans check this one from Seattle School: Jazz Benefit for New Orleans Hurricane Victims on Tuesday, September 13th at the Zig Zag CafĂ© from 8 — 11pm. There will be live jazz from the Brian Kent Trio starting at 8:30, and I’m asking people to come in their New Orleans best attire. There may be other musical guests as well. I’m still looking around. I’m asking for a suggested donation to the Red Cross at the door of $10, but also encouraging gifts of more if people can afford it. The Red Cross will send charitable receipts for any check donation (not cash unfortunately).
