Henry Butler is a really awsome jazz pianoist. I have a couple of his records and he is really worth the effort to see him play, especially if it is free.

This is a really worthy cause. A large portion of the proceeds will go to helping Henry Butler getting his life back in order. He is a blind jazz pianoist that has been devistated by the storm and has relocated to Colorado.

You’re right, there are still a lot of things that need to be done. We can’t forget about what happened and everyone whose lives are still in shambles. There will be numerous student organizations represented at this event. Several Greek institutions, clubs, and others will have booths set up.
