This is a local concert in Dallas, TX called Local Euphoria 2008.
It is being held at the Curtain Club ad the Liquid Lounge simulatiously, on April 26, 2008. We're having local bands to play the event for free, and all the proceeds go to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. www.lls.org
It is our goal to raise $12,000 for the cause, while raising awareness to the local youth about the cancer and the good of the society. It is my personal job to try to find sponsorship to help fund the event and to meet our goal for the society. I'm also the interim director because our main director has broken her ankle, so I'm also contacting the venues and helping with direction on what needs to take place. I'll be setting up a donation and a raffle table on site.
The reason a concert was chosen as the event is because local music is a major part of the Dallas area, and is a great way to bring the younger community together.
My personal reason for why I chose to do this is because of my good friend Timothy Mesch. He passed away 3/27/07 from a metastazied Melanoma. He was 26 years old. Annie Karundethu has worked with the LLS before in the past and asked me to help out with the event. Although Melanoma doesn't fall under Leukemia or Lymphoma, cancer can still be educated to our society. It's my goal to let everyone know that this can happen to anyone, and we need to come together to help fight the disease and help the families that are suffering from it.
This is in honor of Timmy.
