Benefit Gig: OpenNet Foundation Pig Roast, Sat July 27, 6-10PM. Wilmington DE
I’ve been donating my time and vocal cords to the OpenNet Foundation for years, singing The National Anthem before all of their all-star hockey games. The OpenNet Foundation is a wonderful volunteer organization created by former co-workers of Jill’s, and they are dedicated to raising money for worthy charities through hockey tournaments and hockey-themed events. Last year The OpenNet Foundation donated $10,000 (!!) to Juvenile Arthritis research at AI DuPont Childrens Hospital, and this year we’re raising money for them again. Wooot!
So yep, this is a fund raiser, and we hope you’ll attend! It’s a pig roast, but don’t worry, there will be all sorts of food options there (not just roasted pig), with performances by Hot Breakfast!, and the female-fronted hard-rock band Souls of Fate (in their unplugged state). Beer and wine will be available, too.
Tickets are $30, and it will be a really good time. Plus, you don’t have to get all gussied up; they say “outdoor casual attire.” I would bring bug spray in addition to your shorts, though. (And if it rains, I *believe* it’ll be moved inside.)
