benefit for Alan Czarzasty! 11/11/07

Friends and family,

please join us at the benefit for Alan Czarzasty on Sunday, November 11, 4-8pm, at Fergie's Pub (upstairs), 1214 Sansom St., Philadelphia (more info on Fergie's below). As most of you know, Alan has stage-four melanoma. He underwent two brain surgeries and radiation therapy at Jefferson Hospital, and is currently staying at his parents' house in Riverside, NJ.

The benefit features a silent art auction, music by Zee, and a poetry reading by Frank Sherlock, CAConrad and Janine Hayes. We will be auctioning off photography, prints, paintings, massages, voodoo and other kinds of dolls, and baked goods. Cindy Burstein, a local documentary filmmaker, has agreed to videotape the event.

Suggested donation at the door is $10, but you're welcome to give more or less. There are bars upstairs and downstairs, with lots of Belgian beer and pub fare like fish and chips.

Come celebrate Alan's life, his amazing spirit, and his love for New Orleans with his friends and family -- sign a guestbook, bid on art, drink, get in the second line! All proceeds will go to the Czarzasty Fund. If you're interested in donating a piece for the art auction or some baked goods, please let me know -- we'd like more volunteers, especially the baking kind!:)

Hope to see you there, and thank you,
