Here is our team with Jonathan. We love you!
Our friend Jonathan, 24, and his two high-school-aged siblings lost their father to cancer last summer and their mother to heart disease last fall. Their house is damaged from a tree falling on the roof. We are raising funds to help the family with home repairs, legal fees, and living expenses. Thanks to the fine folks at the High Dive and the musicians for making this event happen. Let’s show Jonathan some support and have a damn good time while we’re at it!
