join their musical talents to support a night of giving
A star-studded list of folk/rock/experimental performers are donating their time and talent in aid of a young Kazakh man, Hasetie’er. In late 2011 the 21-year-old Hasetie’er was left on life support after a motorbike accident. His disabled father and mother are now bereft of their only son, and the only income-earner in their family. This rural family has had little aid in pursuing the individual who caused the accident and with hospital costs mounting have been left destitute. The Kazakh community has stepped in to help and this event hopes to go a long way toward aiding this family in need. Mako has generously donated its space, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated directly to the family. The only thing missing is your support of this very special event.
When: Wednesday January 11, 2012 8pm
Where: Mako Live House
How much: 100 (door); 50 (students/ presale)
