successful fundraiser

Thanks to all who made it out on such a blistery, rainy night to support our series. I want to thank in particular Rob Bethel for making the beautiful cafe space at the Armory happen, Susan for being the behind the scenes producer and all of those who participated in the performances that night. Noel Dorcy, Matt Samolis, Peter Blum, Esther Viola, Rob Bethel, Sara Bielanski, all combined talents and efforts to create another great Vortex night! Thank you Heather Townsend for the great pics and hopefully we'll have some audio clips available soon, so stay tuned!
