Fund Raiser at Java Monkey, July 3

When you go to a place long enough, you get to know and care about the staff. We were saddened to hear that one of the Java Monkey baristas and her friend were in an accident a couple of weeks ago. She's alive, although injured and still in the hospital. I'm posting this announcement by Jess, Java Monkey's owner, in hopes that you wonderful oenophiles (and coffee lovers!) will come to the fund raiser to help this young lady and her friend with their expenses:

Help Amy and Leah!
Amy Sarrell, longtime JAVAMONKEY employee, and Leah Helfen were riding Leah's scooter when they were hit by an SUV on Jun 7th. At present, both of these wonderful ladies are still at Grady.

On July 3rd, JAVAMONKEY is holding a fund raising event to help cover Amy and Leah's medical and living expenses while they recover. Gently (formerly My Siamese Self), The Bangers, and It's Elephants will be playing, from 8pm-11pm. We will have $3.00 beers and $5.00 glasses of wine until they run out. Also there will be a silent auction with art donated by Pandra Williams, Bill Mayer, Laura Hull, and others, and goods, and gift certificates from JAVAMONKEY, Brickstore, Twain's, Mingei, Taste, Squash Blossom, Decatur School of Ballet, Little Shop of Stories, and more!
