As some of you may know I was one of those pushed out
of New Orleans because of hurricane Katrina. Now back
in Boston I helped organize this show.
Please spread the word.
We have all volunteered so that all of the money can go to
this great group, but without a full house it won't be
a success. Please contact me for any needed
information. Poster of show attached as well to
forward to friends and hang up.
Thank you so much,
