I know, I only show up when I'm pushing something. I hope it helps that I'm pushing something to help the community:

Friends,

We would like to invite you to two days of music, including jazz, pop, folk, reggae, Irish, Americana, Latin and blues, to support ASAP Homeless Services. The benefit will also include lots of barbecue and other food available for purchase, along with a wine tasting. Dancing is not mandatory, but will be encouraged! ASAP is struggling in these hard economic times when homelessness is increasing. This benefit will help them keep the doors open for those who need their help the most.

The benefit will be from 6:00 PM-12:00 midnight on Friday, July 29th and 3:00PM-12:00 midnight on Saturday July 30th. The festival’s venue will be the HUB (Hands United in Business, ASAP’s job readiness training center), 1055 4th Street South in St. Petersburg. (Corner of 4th Street and 11th Avenue South) Cost is only $10 per day. If you haven’t seen the HUB, there is no better way to see it than filled with music!

Please join us for this concert; you are sure to find music you like. The organizer has organized shows for other concert venues and is presenting some of the area’s best. Mark your calendars now; more information will follow. Donations of socks, underwear and non-perishable food will be accepted at the concerts. For more information, call ASAP at (727) 823-5665 or us at 727-367-3592.
