Coming up on October 15th here in Palmie there is going to be the FARA fundraising gig, organised by a friend of mine.
From the ticket:
"Friedreich Ataxia Research Association (FARA) Fundraising Gig.
Friedrichs Ataxia is a degenerative neuro-muscular disorder affecting a number of young New Zealanders. There is currently no treatment or cure for this debilitating and life-shortening disease. FARA is a non profit organisation dedicated to supporting families with FA and promoting research that will improve the quality and longevity and ultimately lead to a treatment and cure."
If you live locally, you can come along and jive to the band, "Ruff n Ready". (Contact me via comments and I can tell you more about getting a ticket.)
