You may know Ramona Barnes as a fashion designer. Or maybe she made you laugh, while she was waitressing at the 5 Point or Lost Lake. In any case, she's a Seattle gem of a lady. She's helping her sister fight a mean battle with leukemia. Here is the invite on Facebook.
Ramona's sister, Melissa, was diagnosed with leukemia in April. She has been undergoing chemotherapy ever since and will now be having a bone marrow transplant on December 6th. Ramona will be going to Florida for two months to act as Melissa's 24/7 caretaker during her recovery. To offset the cost of being out of work during this time, Ramona will need a little help from her friends!
There's a raffle/auction tonight, starting at 9 pm at The Unicorn/Narwahl. Neat items include: Paintings from Crystal Barbre and Shawn Diaz; two photos by me, Kelly O: a handmade brass bottle opener from Iacoli & McAllister; jewelry from Elizabeth Patterson Jewelry; Showbox and Crocodile tickets; gift cards and swag from Lucky Vintage, Big Mario's, 5 Point, Lost Lake, Elysian and Pony; clothing and accessories from Ramona Barnes and Prairie Underground; tattoo gift certificates to Under the Needle.
There's also a show tonite! With Josh Hartvigson, Jackie Hell, DJ Jess Wamre, comedy by Victoria Liss, and live music by Underworld Scum and Bad Motivators.
If you can't be there tonight—here's a donation link where you can contribute a dollar or three, at any time. Anything and everything helps.
