Ha ha - sorry Ted Tiki from Minneapolis, it looks like I mistook you for TedTiki (no space) of the mask-wearing, horror surf sensation: "Go! Tsunami". Sorry about that, although if you do in fact have masked henchmen, I would be interested to know if they'll be coming too.

And Bamboo- thanks for all of your efforts to organize this benefit! The proceeds are going towards a great cause!

Most of my henchmen are on-strike, so I may only have a henchperson with me. Two is better than none.

There will be forty or so of these posters available at the show for a measly $10 each, with all proceeds going to The Daddy-o Grande Medical Fund! So be sure to get yours.

Viva Daddy-o Grande!!!!!

Well after everything was said and done, we brought in $1630.

Just wish there would have been a lot bigger crowd! Surprisingly only about 100 people were in attendacne, and 40 or so were the musicans.

Mucho Mahalos go out to all in attendance, (plus a few who couldn't make it but sent checks) for your huge hearts and deep pockets!

The Tiki Quest/FOM basket went to Susan Funk
DSK Designs basket went to Final Cut Recording Studios
Purple Jade/EAM basket went to Guy from Ohio( yes, his name is Guy)
