On April 25, 2009, The Bonaventure Quartet will be the headline act for the Doctor Without Borders charity fundraiser. The event will be held at The Alcove Contemporary Arts Gallery, 2852 East College Ave, Decatur, GA 30030.

As some of you may recall, our Senior Warden, Bill Wallace, will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in July to raise awareness for Doctors Without Borders. Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania, rises 4,600 m (15,100 ft) from its base (and approximately 5,100 m (16,700 ft) from the plains near Moshi), and is additionally the highest peak in Africa at 5,891.8 meters (19,330 ft). Bill is paying for the entire trip out of pocket. See more about Doctors Without Borders in the previous post.

The event will begin at 7PM with the Bonaventure Quartet playing three 45 minute sets of French Cabaret / Django Reinhardt inspired jazz. Many of you whince at the thought of jazz, but you'd have to be out of your tastless mind to not like this ensemble.

Tickets are $15.00 and will be available shortly.
