Mark Your Calendars: Dan-a-Palooza!!
On Sunday, September 13th, I am hosting a little benefit for Dan at BookPeople. We are calling this Dan-a-Palooza. Dan is a longtime employee at BookPeople, a Kick Ass Award winner, and an all around superb human being. He has had some serious health issues lately and-- can you say hot topic-- he has no insurance.
I know these are tight times for everyone. I want to stress that, while we are hoping to at least slightly defray Dan's costs, an even bigger goal is to lift his spirits with a big turnout.
I, along with several members of the Dick Monologues (including-- yay-- Southpaw Jones) will be performing pieces about healthcare. We might even have some surprise musical guests. Also, we're making this a brunch-- 11 til 1ish and we are providing all the food. So if you can swing a little donation, you get tons of entertainment and lots of good food AND you get to help out Dan.
I am hoping that attendees can make a minimum donation of $10, but there will not be some big bouncer reinforcing this. If $10 is beyond your reach but you still want to help-- COME ON OUT anyway and throw what you can into the hat. If you can't make the event but want to donate anyway, please email me and I'll let you know how to do that.
It would help me very much if you would let me know if you plan on attending so we can plan food accordingly. The event will be on the third floor. You can email an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please pass this along to other interested parties.
