88:Keys, A Benefit For Frank Spitznagel


Frank Spitznagel is a gifted musician who has long worked in the NY theater and comedy communities. This summer he spent months in and out of the hospital with a rare blood disease called Wagners Granularmaitosis. Like so many artists and performers, Frank has no health insurance to help him deal with his growing hospital bills.

To help him out, and show our appreciation, we're hosting a benefit starring some of New York's biggest comedy and Broadway stars! Along with the show, there will be a silent auction featuring gift packages and rare items from Comedy Central, Saturday Night Live, Avenue Q, and others.

Performers include:
Emily Skinner (Side Show, Full Monty, etc.)
Ed Helms (The Daily Show)
Raissa Katona Bennet (Phantom Of The Opera)
Ann Harada, Jennifer Barnhart, Stephanie D'Abruzzo, and Jordan Gelber (Avenue Q)
Leah Hocking (Dance of the Vampires, Jekyll & Hyde)

And many other surprise guests!

Question:

I definitely can't make it (I can't wait to finally move to NYC and get the heck outta stupid cleveland ohio!) but is there a place where I can make a donation to the cause anyways? I don't wanna just buy a ticket anyways cause then that means someone who COULD go won't be able to but I do wanna make a donation if there's a way to do that.

Lemme know and I hope it is incredibly successful! :)
