A Benefit for Simon
Host: Mark & DeNiece Guest
Today from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm at Curras DOM on 72 Weaverville Rd.
A group of friends are helping to organize a benefit to cover some of the expenses associated with our our son’s hospitalization and illness. As you may know, our son Simon was hospitalized in Birmingham, AL on November 20, 2008 with a large and complicated aortic aneurysm. He was given very long survival odds and continues to slowly improve. We hope to transfer him to Mission/St. Joseph’s hospital soon, but until then, we continue to burn up the miles driving to and from Birmingham.
The Benefit for Simon will take place on Tuesday, June 16 from 6-10PM in the new patio at Curras DOM, 72 Weaverville Rd., in North Asheville. It will be a ticketed event that includes dinner (provided by Curras) with music provided by New Orleans’ Phil DeGruy (who is making a special trip up from NOLA just for this event), plus many other local and regional musicians. A raffle will also be held during the benefit. If you have an item that you would like to donate for the raffle, we will certainly be grateful. We will be happy to arrange to pick up your donated item. If you’d like to participate in the raffle, please drop us an email, or call our home at 828-253-1661.
