One word kinda day

There is only one word to describe today.  SLEEP.  Alrighty, now that I have told you what all happened today, let's go over something fun!

Lara is almost on week 3 of her stay in ICU, countless ct scans, a few surgeries, a couple ventilators, and a life time supply of drugs later and Lara is still in ICU with a very long road ahead of her.  Inpatient rehab, outpatient rehab, and who knows what else is along this path.  Lara just graduated from Everest in October and was on her way to a new dental assisting career.  That being said, Lara does not have health insurance.  This weekend there is a benefit being held at the Beach Side Grill and Bar in Port Orchard for Lara called "Local Bands for Lara".  The funds raised will go to help cover some of the medical expenses incurred during this time.  (Not too mention some pretty good bands and good food).

The Beach Side Grill and Bar does have a side for those who are under 21 or those with kids.  There is also a bar side where you must be 21 or over.  They have some great food and I have heard something about a pretty good steak.  There is a $5.00 cover charge and 100% of the cover is being donated to the "Lara Chavez Trust".  As well as 40% of the sales during that day will also be donated.

Thank you to Beach Side Grill and Bar, all of the local bands that are playing (Spence Brothers, Randy Gala, Revolver, Impact, Stand to Fall, Z-Rexx, Zeds Dead, Jug Struggle, and Greenbriar Project) and George Blessings with Greenbriar Project for all of your time and energy and your gift to Lara!

So come down THIS Saturday (November 20) from 1 pm to 1 am and hang out with friends and family like Lara would want us to!  You don't want to miss this!

Some have mentioned they are unable to attend this event but still want to help!  Anyone can go to their local Chase Bank and make a donation to the "Lara Chavez Trust".
