Soup & Bread & That’s All She Wrote

 S&B facebook

We were a show without a home when Karen Gerod, the owner of Swim Cafe, invited us to her Chicago Avenue establishment and told us to make ourselves comfortable. Since that day, we’ve called Swim Cafe home. Early this year Karen was diagnosed with cancer, and in addition to battling the disease she now faces enormous bills. To say thank you, and give back to the person who’s given us so much support, we’re teaming up with Martha Bayne of Soup & Bread at the Hideout for a benefit: Soup & Bread & That’s All She Wrote at the Hideout on Wednesday, December 11, 5:30-8pm.

There will be soups from an array of local cooks including Milk & Honey, Hoosier Mama’s Allison Scott, and artist and “Mortified! Chicago” host Shay DeGrandis, followed by readings on the theme of health care and caretaking from Angela Benander, JH Palmer, Martha Bayne, Tom Wolferman, Sheri Reda, and Dmitry Samarov. Music provided by DJ Lawrence Peters. Suggested donation $10; all proceeds will be donated to Karen.

For more information see our Facebook event page. If you’re not able to attend but would like to make a donation visit the YouCaring account that has been set up for Karen.

Thank you.
