We’re gonna be serious here for a moment.
Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy has sorta fallen out of the news now, but so many people still need help. So the super-talented Chad Michael Jervis and his wonderful dad Rick have put together a sweeeeeeet seven-hour concert on Saturday December 1st at Extreme Pizza in the LOMA district of Wilmington, and they’ll be accepting financial donations. Every penny of these donations is going to Covenant House in Atlantic City, which is a homeless shelter for anyone under 18. Covenant House has been housing kids while they and their families rebuild their homes. Great news: LinkedIn will be matching all hurricane-related donations to Covenant House, so your dollars will go much farther.
Please note that only financial donations are being accepted. Please don’t bring food, clothes, supplies, etc.
The all-star lineup and schedule looks like this:
3:00 PM Joe Trainor (he’s playing solo)
4:00 PM Katalyst
4:45 PM Kona Shame
5:30 PM The Acoustic Jam
6:15 PM Dr. Phineas’ Snake Oil String Band
7:00 PM Chad Michael Jervis
8:00 PM The Watermelon Men
8:45 PM Hot Breakfast!
Extreme Pizza is a really terrific place to listen to music. They’ll also be having happy-hour prices and specials all day just for the event. There’s no cover charge– so please come by for a bit, put your donations in the jar, have a bite and a beer or two, and rock out with us!
