TREVOR WARE FUNDRAISER
8 p.m. White Water Tavern. Donations.

A lot of you probably know Trevor Ware, who plays bass in The Grand Serenade and with other musicians as well. He was hit by a drunk driver while riding his motorcycle last month and remains in the hospital with very serious injuries.

This is a trying time for his friends and loved ones, and the possibility of major medical bills and other ancillary expense on top of all the other stresses is just too awful to think about. So far, an EverRibbon account has collected more than $10,000 in donations to help with those costs. His friends have organized this fundraiser concert and art show, featuring a boatload of talented local musicians and artists, to help out further (lineup here).

The term "community" gets used a lot, to the point of seeming sort of meaningless at times. But it is at times like this when one can truly see the power of a community — family and friends and friends-of-friends and folks even further removed — to come together and help one another out.

You can still donate online at and you can make donations at this show as well.
