For those of you lucky enough to be in the Minneapolis, MN area, where the blossoming of the Spring can bring about spiritual renewal and a yearning for romance, this is a great event that you should check out. Jason Smith, a former house mate of mine and dedicated to the good cause of cooperative living, is raising money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. He will be racing in a benefit triathalon (the fact that the triathalon is in Maui is ok, I suppose, since it’s for a good cause and all 🙂 ).
To help with the fundraising, he will be hosting a benefit concert at St. Petersburg restaurant (3610 France Ave. N)in Robbinsdale on April 27th(this Friday) starting at 7PM. Brother and Sister, Viceburgh(both Co-op bands), Russian Gypsy music, and various other local musicians will be featured.
There will be a $10 donation at the door. It will be a good way to support a great cause, try Russian food and vodka, and hear local bands. Donations can also be made at www.active.com/donate/tntmn/tntmnJSmith or by mailing a check for LLS to Jason Smith, 1721 University Ave. SE, Minneapolis MN 55414.
