Looking for a headliner for the PeaceLoveHaiti benefit!!!

On Friday, Oct. 22, Friday, there will be a benefit for PeaceLoveHaiti at R.T. Quinlan’s starting around 9 with all $5 of the cover going to the charity.

Little Black Books will be playing, as well as Tony Bennett as the lone acoustic guy, but we need a headliner!!! Are you in a band that will donate one night of rock (hip hop, reggae, funk, folk, socca, whatev) to help us help Haiti?

PeaceLoveHaiti is a nonprofit group made up of 2 RNs. We go to Port au Prince and try to help as many people as possible by running mobile clinics in the tent cities there. We have a blog — peacelovehaiti.blogspot.com.

We need to make some drug money so we can bring plenty of vitamins, antibiotics, etc. with us. If you are seriously interested please email us at peacelovehaiti @ yahoo.com

COGGS Movie Night: Bicycle Dreams

Our third COGGS Movie Night at the Zinema is this Thursday, Sept. 30 at 7:15.

We’ll be watching Bicycle Dreams, an award winning documentary on the Race Across America. The RAAM is one of the most difficult ultra endurance events in the country, requiring cyclists to traverse 3,000 miles over 10 days. The documentary details what it takes to compete in this event and the level of insanity that most of the racers exhibit to even entertain the notion.

Tickets are $7.50. It’s highly recommended you get yours early to reserve a seat.

Proceeds go to COGGS, the organization that has built and maintains multi-use singletrack trails at Mont du Lac, Spirit Moutain, Piedmont, Hartley and Lester-Amity.

Night Without a Home Sleepout and Fundraiser at Wade Stadium

Saturday, Oct. 9

Hundreds of area residents will be sleeping outside Saturday, Oct. 9, at Wade Stadium in an effort to raise donations to aid the homeless in our community.

Night Without a Home Sleep Out and Fundraiser will include a homelessness demo along with music and many great speakers. Funds and items collected by participants will benefit the more than 500 homeless in our community at the Project Homeless Connect event to be held at the Washington Center on Oct. 28.

A Night Without a Home asks participants not just to learn about homelessness but to be part of the solution to raise awareness of homelessness in our own community by sleeping outside for a night. The event is also intended to raise donations that will help those in our community who don’t yet have the option of a warm bed. Participants will be joined by a group of speakers featuring residents who have experienced homelessness, faith leaders, and community leaders.

For more information you can call Scott at 218-590-0943 or send an e-mail to twinportsaction @ charter.net.

Dark Emperor at Sivertson Gallery

“Come feel the cool and shadowed breeze,
come smell your way among the trees,
come touch rough bark and leathered leaves:
Welcome to the night.”

With Joyce Sidman’s (Wayzata) poems and the illustrations Rick Allen (Duluth) spent nearly two years printing, Dark Emperor received four starred reviews (from Booklist, Publisher’s Weekly, Kirkus & Horn Book) and was chosen as a Junior Library Guild Selection–even before its official release date!
