Painted Turtle Benefit 2009

Ken Ebbitt & Seth Miller, among others, will be hosting the annual Painted Turtle Benefit at Bimbos on November 14, 2009. I hope you'll join me there. It's always a great time and Tainted Love will be playing as usual. It's black tie so you get to get all gussied up. You buy tickets through Firefly here. Tickets always sell out far in advance so buy them now. I just bought mine.

For those who don't know, I volunteered at Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Gang Camp back in the day. It's a camp for kids with cancer and their siblings who are often unintentionally neglected and feel guilt. I worked "sibs" week and it's one of my most precious life experiences. I worked at Camp Okizu, another wonderful camp out of Stanford with the same mission, the next year cause it was much closer. However, a few years ago Newman's Gang formed The Painted Turtle in Southern California and Ken & Seth have been supporting it ever since with this benefit.

It's an awesome night for a very special charity. I hope you'll be there.
