Eve & Patti Sing To Make A Difference

Eve SelisTwo of my singer/songwriter friends, Eve Selis and Patti Zlaket, will be among the performers at a concert this Saturday, October 23, that will be part of Project Warmth, the contribution of the EveryDay Angels Foundation to national Make A Difference Day. Singers Peggy Lebo and Mary Dolan also will appear. I shot the top picture of Eve in 2002 and the middle one of Patti this past May. I've never actually met Mary, but I did see her perform in March, when I shot the bottom photo of her.

Patti ZlaketNow in its 14th year, Make A Difference Day is sponsored by USA WEEKEND magazine, in partnership with the Points of Light Foundation. It is an annual event that takes place on the fourth Saturday of each October, and it's said to be the most encompassing national day of helping others -- a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. In 2003, three million people cared enough about their communities to volunteer on Make A Difference Day, accomplishing thousands of projects in hundreds of towns!

Mary DolanThe EveryDay Angels Foundation strives to increase community involvement and support. The group says that while they aspire to be global in nature, their strength is their grassroots community involvement. Initially inspired by the philosophies and sensibilities of singer/artist Jewel Kilcher, they are establishing guidelines and a plan for action to let the world know that "we are all in this together and are truly each other's 'everyday angels,' responsible to and for one another." They encourage individual awareness of the world we live in, and thoughtful choice as to how to live our lives to their fullest potential.

Here's an e-mail from Eve:

Hey there! My good friends Peggy Lebo, Patti Zlaket, Mary Dolan and I are doing a concert on October 23rd in support of national Make A Difference Day, an annual event celebrating neighbors helping neighbors.

It's a benefit for the EveryDay Angels Foundation's Project Warmth, which was established to help address the needs of so many people literally left "out in the cold" each winter. There are approximately 3-and-a-half-million homeless people in cities all across our country and 39% of them are children.

To attend the concert, all we ask is a donation of a blanket or warm clothing, which will be distributed to the homeless through the Interfaith Shelter Network, so in the spirit of "Do You Know Me," please join us on October 23 in making a difference.

Eve Selis & Friends “Make A Difference” WHERE: Seaside Church of Religious Science 1613 Lake Drive, Encinitas WHEN: Saturday, October 23, at 7:30 p.m.  DONATION: Blanket or Warm Clothing
