SF Weekly readers probably haven't forgotten the disastrous blaze that consumed several Western Addition buildings just three days before Christmas. But you can stop wondering what happened to those unfortunate victims, and start helping them.
St. Cyprian's Episcopal Church is hosting the Beyond the Blaze benefit to raise cash, all of which will go toward helping these fire victims get back on their feet. Tonight, residents are invited to come grub, win prizes, and hear Leonard Cohen tunes covered by an a cappella group. Come check out the four local bands playing -- Gaucho, Even Taylor, Conspiracy of Beards, and The Sundance Kids.
As if that wasn't good enough reason to dole out money for fire victims, there will also be a cash bar -- at church!
The benefit begins at 6:30 p.m. If you can't make it tonight, no worries, there's still plenty of opportunity to donate. You can send the event organizers a check made payable to ASNA (Alamo Square Neighborhood Association), write in the subject of check "Fillmore Music Fundraiser," and mail to P.O. Box 15372, San Francisco, CA 9411.
