Open Mic for the Gruft

Standard

The last Open Mic at Cafe Korb in Vienna was a great success.  Proceeds from donations at the door went to The Gruft for their winter charity drive: Winter Packet. Almost €260 was raised. Some of the evening highlights:

  • Award winning Y.A. novelist, Keith Gray was MC for the evening.
  • Patrick O’Gorman donated three signed copies of his novel, “The Drowning of Innocence” for the charity cause.  The copies were snapped up by some savvy readers.
  • There was a lovely mix of performances, including short stories, novel excerpts, stand-up comedy, and a song.

The charming evening was a collaborative event by friends at Write Now, and Creative Cafe, which I administer.

Thank you to everyone who attended for their performances, fine company and generosity.

Many people (and prairie dogs) believe wearing a hat significantly improves their singing 🙂

Along with good friends at Write Now, and with guest host and award winning YA novelist, Keith Gray, I’ll be hosting another Open Mic at Cafe Korb this December.

Proceeds to The Gruft for their winter charity action: sleeping bags and warm food for the homeless. More details about the Guft.

The Open Mic charity event is a great opportunity for creative people to meet up, to perform on stage (if they wish) or simply enjoy the performances, and to contribute to a wonderful and greatly needed cause.
