Musical Fundraiser for Hurricane Irene Victims Set for Monday
As we watched Irene strike the Northeast over the summer, the feelings of anxiety and, later, "unexpected" flooding, were all too familiar. Now, a local singer/songwriter is looking to give back. "I played at least fifteen Katrina fundraisers up North in 2005 which helped raise over $100,000.00 in concerts at churches, theatres and nightclubs," Chip Wilson said, according to a news release. "So now, it's time for payback." Wilson has gathered a stable of New Orleans artists to play a fundraiser for Irene victims tomorrow night at Jackson Ave's Trinity Episcopal Church.
Today's Events: 5/2/11
May 2, the day that President Johnson offered a $100,000 reward for the capture of Jefferson Davis, in relation to his being behind Lincoln’s assassination, 1865. Eight days later, Jefferson would eventually be captured by Federal/Union troops. On this day in 1949, Arthur Miller received the Pulitzer for his ‘Death of Salesman’; ironically, Joseph McCarthy died eight years later, on this same day, as did Leonardo Da Vinci, in 1519. Lake Charles, LA’s favorite astronaut Domonic L Pugwill Gorie was born (1957), and Diane Crump became the first female jockey to compete in the Kentucky Derby (1970).
