Quick Note: Save the Date - 26 Jan!

If you've been reading here for a while, you've heard me talk about (or at least seen pictures of) Sugar (the Band). No big secret that I'm a fan, but I don't normally "promote" their shows -- 'cause they don't normally need the help.

In this case though, I'm going to make an exception. If you live in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area, consider coming out to Napper Tandy's on Monday the 26th for a special early-edition benefit performance. Why this show? Well here's what I know so far. In the periodic newsletter I get from the band, I found this note:

Monday Jan 26th at Napper Tandy's
- Kid Friendly Event 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM -
to raise money for a family in need.

Recently a single mom in Wake County lost her home completely to fire. Now, we are firing up the community to help her and her kids replace some of what was lost. Bring your kids and plan on coming to Napper Tandy's on Monday evening early to have dinner and rock with us. Bring cash or checks for donations and thanks for your support in this matter!

Wicked fast update: As I was writing the original post, Bryan from the band was digging up some more information on the story. This link came from the Cary News. It's a little thin on details, but you can see the house was totaled.

If you're outside the area or just can't make it to the show but would still like to help out, Bryan's also given me the name and address of the donation trustee.

Mail and make donation checks payable to:

Nicole Kincaid
2041 Quail Forest Drive
Raleigh NC 27609

Bryan has promised me more details, and as soon as I know more, you'll know more. So watch this space... I'll be in touch!

OK, I'll save the date.
But there is no air-seats available from here in Oslo, Norway, that matches this event.

Pls write a report with Photos;))

Very caring of you to pass the word, Mojo, and for the band to hold the event. It's life as I love to see it - filled with compassion.

And Mojo - Tag! You're it!
