There will be a fundraiser for Jimmy Kerrigan, formerly of Manor Street in Hamden, on February 2nd. Jimmy recently lost his home & possessions during the Camp Fire that destroyed his town of Paradise, CA. The event will be at Aunt Chilada's Mexican Restaurant in Hamden.The beauty here is that all we need people to do, is to show up. The restaurant will make the donation.
There are two ways to participate. Order in the restaurant (or take-out) after 4:00, on Feb 2nd. Present the event flier with your payment, and Aunt Chilada's will donate 15% of your pre-taxed bill to the Paradise, CA, Camp Fire Fund on Go Fund Me. That account was set up and administered by Melissa Willis, to help Jimmy. You may view the account though the following link:

https://http://www.*****/****


If you come upstairs to the Cantina, no flier is needed. Whether you order a beverage, an appetizer, and/or dinner, 15% of all pre-taxed sales benefit the same account. For those of you who were around (and can still remember) 30 years ago, Ralph Santoro has agreed to once again strap on his acoustic guitar and join Robbie G for an acoustic dinner set. That will be from 4:30 to 5:30. For those who still like to dance, Ralph will trade the acoustic guitar for his 6-string bass to join the Rob Glassman Band as they play two sets from 6 to 8:30. There is no cover so please consider coming out to see old friends and start the new year right with some unselfish kindness for those in need. Above all else, take a moment to be grateful that we are the fortunate ones to be on giving end of this goodwill!

Event fliers are at http://www.*****/****under "events."
