Thank you for contributing to our efforts to raise funds for the Celeste Warren Memorial Fund. It is our hopes that we will raise enough this evening for a full match by the Lesbian Gay Band Association (LGBA) of $6000. Any amount above and beyond our goal this evening will go toward the purchase of percussion equipment.
