Benefit Concert for Alex (and other fun events)

Granted, it's not quite Band-Aid, but there will be a benefit performance at Coco Jarry's Restaurant and Thirsty Parrot Cocktail Bar in Renfrew on Saturday, June 27th from 8 to 11 by Pure Antics.

This was organized by a family friend's daughter, who wanted to help raise money for Alex's service dog.  She and her fellow bandmates went to local restaurant and bar owners and offered to play for free if they would raise money.

I'm really touched by this offer.

Alex's school, South March Public School, is also doing a fund-raising event.  The Grade 6s are selling handcrafted bracelets at their school barbecue on Thursday, June 11th.  (That's tomorrow.)

Dave's work, Gridway Solutions, is having a charity event as well next week.  (Sorry, that one is invitation only.)

The community support has been amazing.  I can't thank everyone enough.
