Hi lovely people,
Please see the details regarding the benefit below:
Date: November 14, 2009
Time: 3:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Location: Plaza Pub, 1605 New York Ave, Arlington, TX, (817) 460-7346
The benefit is for Ryan and Heather (Watkins) Skagen. They recently
experienced a tragic loss when their 9 day old daughter, Aura Kay
Skagen, passed away due to complications from a 36 hour delivery. The
benefit is our local Celtic community's way to help with the financial
burden now faced by Ryan and Heather. Thanks to the efforts of Deanna
Smith-Scotland and Craig Scotland, there will be numerous items for a
raffle and silent auction. Ed, the owner of the Plaza Pub, is having
food catered in as his "donation to the cause". To partake, we'll ask
for a donation.
The musical line up for the benefit will be:
4:00 - 4:45 - Beyond the Pale
5:15 - 6:00 - Bards' Crossing
6:30 - 7:30 - Needfire
Immediately after the benefit, the Trinity River Whalers will start
performing at 9:00 p.m. They will be including a tribute to Curt Marcus
(Heather's uncle who just recently passed from a fatal heart attack). I
understand there will be a slide presentation with photos of Curt and
long time friends and family. The Whalers will be performing songs that
are particular favorites of Curt's. I'm sure there will be lots of
stories and toasts floating around the Pub that evening as friends and
family gather to talk about their favorite memories of Curt.
Many thanks to everyone who is donating items for the benefit and to the
musicians and Shadow Walter for sharing their time and talents with us.
Thank you SO MUCH for your generosity!
Please come out to the benefit, help with donations - and then stay
afterwards for the Whalers. It'll be a night to remember!!! Spread the
