There is a memorial to be held for Jeff Davis this Saturday June 16 7:00pm at Lennon Studios, potluck/4 bands. Please bring money so as to donate to Jeff's cremation and lend a hand with Nikki's hospital bills and expenses. Please help in any way you can. A donation site will be available soon.
May you rest in peace Jeff...
UPDATE: Ami Lawless, close friend and bandmate of Jeff, Radio Velencia DJ, Selfish Satan Records and Captain of the Frisco Pyrate Punx posted this earlier today (6/16/12):
HEY EVERYONE- YEP I'M USING THE CAPS BECAUSE THIS IS AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING THIS MEMORIAL & ITEMS THAT ARE BEING DONATED;
"Due to the overwhelming support & response we will have to point people to check in donations and get the donors information when you get to Lennon before you do anything please check in with Sandee Simon or Angela Lazarich. Please do not be offended if the items you are donating are not sold at this event. Carole Lennon has generously offered us a room to store stuff that will be sold at the other upcoming benfits and honestly Nikki Davis is facing a long road to recovery and the continous efforts y'all are putting forth are greatly appreciated. Her family is in agreement with this and is blown away at this amazing show of community support.
For folks bringing food for the potluck please get ahold of Alisa Valente with your dish when you arrive...
AND DON'T FORGET TO BRING $$$$ TO DONATE.
Nikki's folks & Jef's sister thank you all."
