This is a call for support.
Jen Hosoi, Steve Mateus, and myself have organized a benefit party for the weekend of the Soul Bowl competition. The goal is to raise $ for Christian’s legal fees that continue to mount as this trial is pushed further into limbo. It will be held Saturday night, Aug 2nd, at The Tequila Agave (formally known as the Tap House) on the corner of Beach and Adams. Doors will open at 8:00. There will be a required donation at the door of Ten Dollars that goes directly to the cause. No Exceptions! You are welcomed and encouraged to donate more. There will be a large VIP room for pros. Bands will play! TBA. We are trying to work out free beer that has been donated by PBR but at this moment it is frowned upon by the establishment.
We are planning a raffle with donated product. Guests will receive a raffle ticket with the donation. We are asking for a donation of product to be raffled off in hopes raising over $10,000.00 that is currently owed in legal fees. We don’t know if that is a realistic goal but we are going to try because we know how many people love Christian. No one wants to do this alone but if everyone comes together anything is possible. All we have to offer in return is a logo on the flyer (art work, layout and time donated by Sergie Ventura) that will be handed out during the event. Companies that wish to get involve and make donations are welcomed to hang banners at the party. Big Brother is covering the party as well as Happy Mag. The film company that is making the documentary on Christian’s life is going to be filming the event for the movie.
We are trying to have a new t-shirt made to show your support. Sorry for the last minute notice but we can’t pass up an opportunity of so many people being in town for the contest. We need boxes sent ASAP as we are trying to have things lined up by Thurs-Friday. You are welcomed to bring product to the party. Hope you can find it in your heart to help one of our own that is behind bars. The donations need to be sent to the following address:
