Music and a Fundraiser for ALS in Davidson, NC

A big thank you to the musical group Davidson Local — a fun collection of musically gifted Davidson faculty, students, and friends — for offering me a platform to do some ALS awareness-raising and fundraising during a break in their gig at Summit coffee last night. The crowd was great, and when we passed around the hat (well, actually an empty beer pitcher), patrons donated $512 to the NC chapter of the ALS Association. Thanks to all!
