The Skinny:
When....This Friday, 12/12/08 10pm-2am

What...A Fundraiser for SNS Regular Kim, recently diagnosed with a treatable Stage 4 cancer and given 6 months to live if she can't come up with the money to treat it

Damage....$5 donation at the door, $10 Raffle Tickets

Fun Stuff...MAD prizes (including a free DJ set from us at your next party), massive drink discounts

We jest and jab in most of our postings, but I'd like to take this moment for some real talk.

If you ever had a reason to come out, we need you to come out to Saints this Friday and party for a worthy cause.

The regulars at Saints are the soul of our neighborhood and the lifeblood of the bar, and one of those regulars who consistently shows us pure love has been stricken with a deadly cancer.

Her name is Kim, and I wish I had a picture of her, but I always see her and her bright blonde hair at the end of the bar, bobbing her head to WHATEVER music we're playing. She's ALWAYS smiling, and joking and whenever I've had a conversation with her, she was positive and kind. I think she may have even bought James and I a round once upon a time....

Needless to say, anyone who's been in her presence knows she's a pleasant soul to be around. Unfortunately, she has fallen ill with a very treatable cancer that she does not have the money to treat, and she has been given six months to live.

So the Saints & Sinners family is hosting a huge raffle fundraiser blowout THIS FRIDAY on our watch to see what we can do to help her through this. I don't have all the details, but here's what I know:

-There will be a suggested donation of $5 at the door
-All drinks will be $1 off, with proceeds going to the fund
-Raffle tickets are $10
-The prizes are abundant and CRAZY.....they will include (but aren't limited to) free tattoo sessions with the best artists money can buy, haircuts at high-end shops, snowboards and gear, clothing, bartending services, and a truckload of other prizes...

-James and I will raffle off our DJ services for a free party at a time of your choosing

With that all that said, we put up toasts and get drunk every weekend for no reason at all.....so this Friday, come show your support for a fellow barfly who needs all the love she can get now to push through a trying time....

See you Friday!
