Come Celebrate Daniel Thompson's Birthday

An Announcement from Daniel's Friends

Dear Friends/Poets,

Daniel Thompson, Cuyahoga County Poet Laureate, would have turned 71 years on April 21. Join us in a night of celebration in a free concert performance by Drumplay with his comrades of Cleveland + Kent - wordsmiths/friends who knew and loved our poet-warrior. Daniel succumbed to leukemia on May 6, 2004.

This will be a benefit concert for The Homeless Grapevine, a monthly newspaper (to which Daniel contributed), produced and distributed by the homeless through an empowerment project of the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless.

All proceeds will benefit this NEOCH newspaper, and its continued operations. Limited edition CDs/cassettes and books/posters of Daniel Thompson and Drumplay (and other artists) will be available for purchase to help this worthy cause.

Freewill donations will be accepted; and a representative from NEOCH is attending to talk about issues facing the homeless in 2006.

WHEN: April 21, 2006 from 7-11 p.m.
WHERE: Algebra Tea House (Little Italy) Cleveland, Ohio
2136 Murray Hill Road
(216) 421-9007

WHY: You know why!
