Tonight at the Wooden Monkey, there will be a concert featuring Mary Stewart and Ben Caplan and the Casual Smokers to raise money for Stewart's mom Emma Lee Stewart. Last month in this article on the lovely Mary and her song-a-day blog, we mentioned that her mom is seeking alternative treatments for metastatic breast cancer. The event will also feature a tree auction - 300 evergreen trees will be auctioned off, with the proceeds going to treatments for Emma Lee. "Suggested donation is $20," says Stewart, "but really we just want them to go into the ground, so as much or as little as $20, $10, $5, $2 or just your well wishes are good enough for us."
Environmentalist Lil MacPherson will also be speaking. The event runs from 7-9pm at the Wooden Monkey and admission is free.
