CAR CRASH RECOVERY FUND
After the tragic car accident in October that hospitalized
MOFRO bandmembers and friends (and cancelled their tour), the band
is finally on the mend and booking
a new tour.
However, the driver who struck their car from behind
was uninsured and has no assets.
The band's medical bills were massive
and the amount not covered
by their own insurance is about $100,000.
The good news is that a whole bunch of the band's friends and well-wishers
are coming together to celebrate MOFRO's recovery and to
raise some money to defray their massive
medical bills. This support will take the form of a benefit show,
online charity auction, and hopefully some donations from people like you.
We hope that you join us to raise a little money, but
maybe more importantly to raise some spirits.
In any case, please tell a friend...
