After Party

Perhaps you’re looking for something to do after you go to Casey Moore’s on Saturday March 6, or perhaps you work that day so you’re sad you’re going to miss the event at Casey Moore’s.  Either way, some great people have teamed up to host an after party.

Greg Eccles, owner and manager over at Top’s Liquors in Tempe, donated a discounted keg towards the cause, and for $5 you can get a red cup, the perfect accessory for a night of drinking, plus proceeds will go to the illustrious Jen and Alan.

Details Below:

End Time:

The Latest

Lea visited this evening and said “He is doing wonderful! We were able to talk a bit and I told him how much we loved and missed him. He was so happy to hear that everything was being taken care of. He sends his love.”

Mandie visited Alan in the hospital earlier today and said, “Alan is off the breathing tube! Hurray! Our superhuman friend is doing so well. Opened his eyes for a moment but is sleeping like a rock.”

There’s been some great publicity around the Jester’Z benefit show.  You can check out Channel 3’s video coverage.

Already Helped?

If you are donating or collecting donations, please say so!  Go to the Reverse Garage Sale page (you can link to it here or through “How to Help”) and leave a comment with the item/s that you donated.  This will help everyone keep track of what is needed and will hopefully reduce duplicate efforts.

Also, we want to make sure everyone’s work is recognized on the Thank You! page.  I’ll pull thank you’s from the Reverse Garage Sale page but if you know of anyone else who has donated please let me know so we can thank them.

Anybody have Connections?

Mai-Linh is looking into setting up a Thursday pub crawl for Alan and Jen.  She is working on pulling together ideas and organizing them before presenting them to the bar owners. If anyone has particularly great relationships with the bouncers, bartenders, owners of The Tavern, Casey’s and Cue Club and would like to accompany Mai-Linh to discuss things with them, please let her know!
