fight for breath

I don't know if I've ever mentioned it here, but a few weeks ago I hosted an event called "Fight for Breath". It was a benefit show for lung cancer, and in tribute to my friends mom who died cause of it right before xmas.

Well we raised $3500 (bout 300 people came), -$800 in the club expenses. We're sending about $2700 to the lungevity foundation.

Thought id share it, and some pics.


my girlfriend and some hot band guy


tried to get a shot of the crowd. bad pic, but there was around 280-300 there.

lol i didnt take the pic. i dont care im pretty laid back, to me its like her having a crush on a celebrity or something. i joked with her i was like yeah i know your gonna be flirting with spence (that guy) all night, but thats okay cause i am too. and since i was running it, i hadda get his number and everything and made her jealous. heh

decent man. two years ago i helped run a show for a couple benefits.. some of the douches wanted to send money to PETA and Green Peace... I had no intentions of doing that.. so pretty much all of it went to the humane society for the puppies and kittens

i think we got around 1150 or so.. 5 bucks at the door.. so it was decent.

cool dude, we were $10 at the door. there were 10 bands and an $800 club fee -- so the price was very reasonable.

That's awesome. Sounds like you had a pretty good time doing it too, along with contributing to a good cause.

local bands or?

we had no rental fee, we were able to have it in the school. Ran it through a club we set up. and it was all local bands and students bands.. we had a bag pipe player, solo snare, couple punk bands, one or two ska bands.. some piano.. it was pretty spread out.

all very good, very established local bands. the club we rented had full sound production, a full service bar, lighting, etc. it was worth it
