A memorial and fundraiser. It happened.

This will be a short, basic entry.

Saturday night, Beulahland hosted the first fundraiser for the new non-profit that is raising money for a scholarship fund. The fund is called the Dana Thompson Memorial Fund of Awesome.

The fundraiser also was the debut of the art show dedicated to Dana and her memory: art's up on the walls and will be for the next month.

More, perhaps, soon. But: it happened. And Dana's remembered.
