Sounds of Hope Concert for Haiti. By donation. Come blow off work week steam.

Food at extra cost. It's inexpensive & delicious. Donations support relief efforts via the Prosthetics Outreach Foundation (www.pofsea.org) and rehab for the 14,000 people who lost limbs due to the earthquake. Come have a ball!
