Jamming for Life

“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.

  1. Dearest Babs! Hah-Hah!Love this blog!I read your blog header and it appears, with all of your life experiences, that you are over 90 years old. You look MARVELOUS! Thank you for blogging about the Jam for Life held yesterday. We will do it again next September. My little feet are aching today from all the dancing. Wonderful music and great people all helping the GIFT OF LIFE Family House create a place for families of recipients awaiting transplants. BE AN ORGAN DONOR. All it takes is a check mark on your driver's license.
