Bill Metz stopped by my corner office at GBM yesterday morning to deliver the print that Robbie and I acquired at the Big Ring: 2nd Gear Art Auction last week at Angry Catfish Bicycle and Coffee Bar in south Mpls. The event was a benefit for SAVE (Suicide Awareness Voices of Education).
The artist, Northfielder Marybeth Coyle-Frederick, happened to stop in for coffee so I got her to pose with Bill and her donated piece. Bill said the event raised over $3,000.
Scenes from the after-auction party:
Jean Wakely and Marybeth Coyle-Frederick stopped by my corner office at the GBM yesterday to let me know that Aleka Pitsavas is performing Saturday, March 17, 7:00 PM at the NAG Theater, 411 W. 3rd Street. Tix at the door, $15.
Here’s an excerpt from Aleka’s bio page:
A monastic composer / song writer for over a decade, Aleka has spent the majority of the past eleven months creating and completing forty-five original works. A selected twelve of which she is ready to reveal; first to a chosen few and now to the public in her debut CD White Darkness.

This month, Northfielder Aleka Pitsavas has been spending countless hours recording her first studio album. Short fingers and a lack of self-confidence made Pitsavas keep her music to herself for years, but her brother John Pitsavas, before his death, gave her a kick start.
