This afternoon I was procuring a much-needed cup of liquid energy (READ: coffee) from Cafecito Bogota, Ms. Carol entered and told us about this fund-raising effort she was putting together. Needless to say both the proprietor of Cafecito, Freddy Varela, and I found these childrens’ plight absolutely heart-wrenching. Individuals and businesses interested in making a donation should contact send an email to dbsjess (at) aol (dot) com be sure to include “PS 31” in the subject line.

Thanks!

So you may have heard that things aren’t that great these days in terms of money, and that includes money for school programs. The kids at PS31 in Greenpoint can tell you first hand, as they have had their funding cut for many of their programs, including their outstanding chess team.

A few people in the community have banded together to help make sure this stellar group of K-6th graders stays competitive, so we offer you a night of musical awesomeness in exchange for a little support:

My Teenage Stride
Soft Black
The Sleepies
Dream Diary

You can enjoy the musical stylings of all the previous and much more (a raffle is promised!) at Bar Matchless this Friday, November 6, starting at 8:00 p.m. The cost of admission is a measly five bucks and prizes aside, this is for a good cause. Check it out!
