The Heather’s Legacy event on January 6, 2012 was an overwhelming success. If you missed it (shame on you) you missed a great show. All of the artists, who so generously gave their time and talent, E.B. Reece and Paddy O’Neill, JoyScout, Sean Bulow, Phil Steiner, Michael Allen, Sanders Sattler, and The Heater Luttrell Band, were absolutely amazing.
Thank you to Mike Rishel and the entire staff at Tavern 99 who took such good care of all of the patrons and performers (kudos to Charley Parker for keeping our bellies and glasses full and Mike Rishel for being so gracious and accomodating). “Sound-Man Extraordinaire”, Colin deserves a special “shout out” as well for making us all sound like rock stars.
Wendy Wallace designed and produced a beautiful banner for us on incredibly short notice. As with all of the work she’s done for Heather’s Legacy, the banner was nothing short of top-notch. Mary Ann Murphy, who designed the Heather’s Legacy line of jewelry, donated half of the proceeds from jewelry sales to the Foundation. Thanks for all of your hard work! We encourage you to visit her website (in our “Partners” section and peruse all of her beautiful work. Buying jewelry never felt so good!
Liz Murphy, Johann Andren, and Leslie Reutter, were in attendance to support the efforts of Heather’s Legacy, they are all members of the Kennesaw State SIFE team whose past and ongoing support is indispensible. Thank you to Francisco Vidal and Leslie Reutter for booking the venue and helping to keep everything on track.
Heather’s Legacy Webmaster, Ramsay Kabloui was roped at the last minute into taking on the task of manning the door. He did so with an enthusiasm that belied the fact that he thought he was there to enjoy the show and hang out with friends, old and new. Same goes for Isabel Cris and Mike Armstrong for stepping into the roles of ticket takers and videographers at the last minute. Much appreciated!
As Heather’s Legacy grows, the need for the help of friends who feel strongly about our cause becomes more and more apparent. We simply cannot achieve any of the goals we have set for ourselves without the continued support of people like you. Speaking for Heather’s family and all those affected by domestic violence whose names we don’t know yet, thank you, thank you, thank you. The night was a success in many ways.
