This is a blog reflecting the various views, interests, and quirky things that I would like to share.
Welcome to my rantings.
You know our humble host is a longtime resident of Arizona. So he's honored to be performing at a concert to benefit the victims of January's shooting rampage in Tucson. Jackson Browne and Alice Cooper just announced an all-star line-up of musicians at the Tucson Convention Center, (who have donated the building), on Thursday, March 10, 6PM. The event is a fundraiser for the non-profit Community Foundation for Southern Arizona, benefiting the newly established Fund for Civility, Respect, and Understanding.
The Fund will support individuals and families affected by the January 8th shooting in Tucson, and will promote civility and respect in public discourse, schools, and the community. The fund will also work to increase awareness of mental health symptoms, prevention and treatment services.
Performers include Jackson Browne, Alice Cooper, David Crosby & Graham Nash, Sam Moore, Nils Lofgren, Keb’ Mo’, Jerry Riopelle, Dar Williams, Ozomatli, and Calexico. The event will also feature speakers including Ron Barber, who was among those wounded on January 8, NASA Astronaut Mark Kelly (Giffords’ husband), Lea Marquez Peterson (president of the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce) and Tucson Mayor Bob Walkup (who introduced a nation-wide Civility Accord at the winter legislative meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington, D.C. on January 18, which has since been signed by almost 200 mayors).
Tickets go on sale February 19th at 10 a.m. through the Tucson Convention Center Ticket Office 260 S. Church Ave. (10 a.m. - noon), on the web at http://www.ticketmaster.com/, by phone (800)745-3000 and all Ticketmaster Outlets.
Good music for a good cause! The Coop hopes to see you there!
