Most of you know longtime Seattle educator and actor Jessica Goldstein and some of you may know her husband actor Brian King but you may not know about the troubles that have befallen them and what you can do to help.
In the fall of 2010, Jessica was diagnosed with an extremely serious and aggressive brain tumor. About a month after Jessica’s diagnosis, both Jessica and Brian’s Cobra health insurance expired. Private insurance is extremely expensive, Jessica’s medical bills are mounting. Brian and Jessica and especially their four year old son Jonah need the help of those of us fortunate enough to be financially stable and healthy.
I am organizing a multi-tiered fundraiser to raise money for health insurance for Brian, Jessica and Jonah.
What can you do, you ask?
1. Come to our fundraiser on April, 10th at Mountaineers Building located at 7700 Sand Point Way NE Seattle, WA 98115 at 7pm. It will be a great time. We will have a No Limit Texas Hold ‘em Poker tournament, a silent auction and a raffle for a fabulous vacation package. Plus world class entertainment, fabulous food, and a well stocked no host bar.
2. Help us secure donations for the silent auction. If you know anyone who owns a swanky restaurant, makes cool handbags, owns a vacation rental, or works for Starbucks, Adobe, Microsoft, Alaskan Airlines or some other mega producer, we need cool stuff that people want to buy.
3. Help me pull this together. If you don’t have friends in high places and struggle to get by yourself, or if you’re really stinking organized, I need help putting this all together - please consider donating your time to the backbone of this event.
Please, these are good people who have given a lot of themselves and it is their turn to get something back. I can be reached at 206-271-9384 and firstname.lastname@example.org.
