There's a lot going on in the world right now but if I've learned anything at all - it helps to think global and act local.
This Sunday (yes Mother's Day) we're going to be having a backyard benefit concert here in Anaheim to help WTLC. They are a local organization founded in 1976 to meet the needs of survivors of domestic violence and have grown to also accept populations that normally struggle to find help, including mental illness survivors, folks struggling with drug and alcohol abuse, transgender victims as well as emancipated youth.
Our friend Elia has worked with them for a while now and that's how we heard about it.
Since this event is at our house - please message me for the address.
This is also a potluck event so if you feel so inclined, please bring something to share, be it a beverage, dessert or snack. I will have the grill going and cooking up some hot dogs and hamburgers too.

Stop by anytime.
If you can't make it in person, we will have it livestreaming on my Facebook page here.*
We've enlisted some friends to help with the sugar for the medicine:
3:30 - Sound of a Distant Sun (Matt & Geo violin and guitar duo)
4:30 - The Odd Birds (Americana/folk duo)
5:30 - Courtney Chambers (alternative pop)
6:30 - The Fallen Stars (whatever it is we do)
7:30 - Starbird Falls (OC's shortest alt.country supergroup)
We will be taking donations through cash, PayPal and Venmo and donating directly to the WTLC. If you'd rather bring an item, WTLC. org does have suggested items on their website.
Thanks for hanging out with us.
*For fans of the livestreaming - I will be doing a Lunchtime Livestream next week. Lunchtime for me and evening for all my friends in Europe. More about that next week!
