A friend of ours is organizing a fundraiser concert of awesome local musicians on March 1st, and we wanted to let you all know about it.

The concert is March 1st at 2:00pm in the Center for the Arts in Northampton. The performers will be:
- The Smith College Smithereens (a capella)
- The Connotations (a capella)
- Kristin Ford and the Model Tease (folk rock)
- Eric Sean Weld
- Idea Fire Company
- Lory Walfisch (piano)
- Ken Forfia (jazz piano)

Also, transversely's dad is the Emcee! :)

Tickets are $12.00 general, $8.00 students and seniors. Email to reserve tickets.

The website for the concert is here.

Our friend Jo is raising money because her daughter was sexually assaulted this past summer and became pregnant. She chose to try to turn this awful situation into something good: some friends of the family have been wanting a child, and they will be adopting the baby once he is born.

Unfortunately, since the friends live in Canada, this is an international adoption. That means it has to go through agencies, and will end up costing between $32,000 and $40,000. Hence the fundraisers!

If you are unable to attend but still want to help out, donations can be made at:

Please forward far and wide!
