Okay, one of my tops-of the pops, greatest friends Jenny Geurrettaz is going to Africa at the beginning of the new year. She is doing volunteer work and is going to be traveling around, working with and teaching children there. Jenny is a truly amazing individual that I am so proud to know and who fully grabs life by the horns.
We all know Martyrs in chicago as a great place to go see live acts. Jenny has worked there for several years and they have been so kind to put on a benefit show to raise funds for her trip. She has sent out invitations to her friends and contacts about this event but I would like to help her further, and spread word myself. You would be doing her and the world a great service by going to the event and possibly making a donation to be auctioned and/or raffled off at the show. If you would like to go, there will be instructions below on how to obtain the tickets. Also if there is something you would like to donate, original artwork, gift certificates, anything that you think people would be interested in winning through auction or raffle please contact me or her or martyrs.
Below is the letter she sent out about her trip and the event, please read:
