Mary von Kurnatowski, founder of the Tipitina's Foundation, will be making the club available for a benefit. No date yet, but we hope to hold the benefit in the next two weeks. Marie Lovejoy, FEDE's executive director, says "there is no shortage of musicians willing and ready to participate."
Gambit will also set up a webpage for donations, and is working with a local bank where people can drop off donations in person.
We realize this information is very preliminary, but it's in response to the many queries we've received since yesterday. Gambit and the Tipitina's Foundation will update you here on Blog of New Orleans as soon as we have more details, as well as on our Facebook and Twitter feeds.
