We're delighted to report that so far, Studio 60 fans have donated almost $1200 by way of direct donations and "left over" contributions to the ad fund - to the Tipitina's Foundation - that's in a little more than a WEEK!
Our contacts at Tipitina's have told us that they're working on getting their website updated so that you'll be able to check out just how much money is being raised by fans.
This is such a great cause, and Tipitina's has asked us to pass along their thanks to all of you for your generosity.
Even if you can't afford to donate right now, do check out their website. They're doing some amazing things, like rebuilding Fats Domino's house, replacing instruments in schools, replacing instruments lost by musicians who depended on them for their livelihoods.
Later in the year, they're releasing a two CD set in tribute to Fats Domino -- musicians from all walks of life and sound came together to create the album to support Tipitina's efforts. Robert Plant, Elton John, Willie Nelson, Corrine Bailey Rae, Neil Young... to name but a few.
They're doing amazing things down there - and you're helping! Well done.
