It's pretty amazing how quickly this community has rallied around Tess Collins, whose bar and restaurant The Lark Tavern was gutted by a fire last Thursday. Lark Street business owners are scrambling to find work for her employees, and community members have pumped more than $20,000 into the Lark Tavern Fire Fund, set up by Bombers owner Matt Baumgartner.
On Saturday, May 22, the Washington Park Lakehouse will be the venue for Rock to Rebuid, a benefit concert and art auction to help allay Tess' cost of reconstruction. The lineup has yet to be announced, but tickets will be $10.
To volunteer, please send an e-mail to email@example.com. To donate art and items to the auction, e-mail Jasen Von Guiness: firstname.lastname@example.org.
