“It’s a hoot,” says my friend about this Sunday’s fundraiser at Katmandu. On September 20, the nightclub on the Delaware River in Trenton hosts a benefit for Gift for Life, the organ donation organization in Philadelphia that helps to match and support donor families and organ and tissue recipient. The organization serves a wide area of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, and this event, named after a liver recipient and run by a Ewing-based group, is called Papa Carl’s Jam for Life.
In particular, this shindig’s take will go toward building the Gift of Life Family House, to provide a place to stay for distraught families when their loved ones are under the knife. The fifth annual event is open bar, and open menu, $20 at the door, total amount tax deductible. Papa Carl is a musician himself, and though Lisa Bouchelle is the headliner for the day, at least two dozen other bands are turning out to support him.
