Reminder: drinking for a good cause

From Intern Amy:

Thank you for all your calls and emails. The communication black hole doesnít help much during this unimaginable disaster. It is really hard to see these images on TV of the city I grew up in.

Ö.at night I have been volunteering with the Red Cross at LSUís temporary Triage Center, which facilitates medical needs before the disabled are transported to other shelters around the country.

Ö.we will rebuild New Orleans again. Though this disaster is something I never want to remember, this past week has been filled with experiences and emotions I will never forget.

Just a reminder: Tomorrow night, I will be joining my friend Tanya for her Hurricane Relief Event. She's really gone to a lot of effort and word has it, itís made the Daily News.

If you can spare some time and some cash, drop on by. All donations go to the American Red Cross for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

When: Thursday, September 8, 6-8 p.m.

Where: Stitch Bar Ė 247 West 37th St.
between 7th and 8th Ave.

UPDATE: The night was a success! I heard we raised a good chunk of change (to be doubled by matched donations) to be donated to the Red Cross. For pictures and recaps from Miss Tanya's Hurricane Relief Event see:

Without or without pants....depending on how charitable people are.

Keep yer pants on, son. Don't want to frighten the customers.

Don't hate me because I'm willing to go that extra mile for fundraising.

I'm way too far away to attend, plus the mayor asked me never to return to NYC. I will, however, get drunk and donate some money to the Red Cross, in the spirit of fellowship. If I can't afford to do both, I'll at least get drunk.

Have fun, lady.

G, please keep your pants on. For the kids.

If people want me to keep my pants on, then they better pony up and make with the cash!

Posted by: G at September 7, 2005 04:19 PM

yes, we kids have sensitive eyes. one more for the "keep your pants on" team. G, i think you're out voted on this one.

Not the time or the place, my friend. You want to be an asshole, do it somewhere more appropriate. I'm out of patience for people who have no sense of decorum.

Dude, I am officially asking you to knock it off. This post is about something a lot of people care a great deal about. Be nasty somewhere else.
