Todd Duke is an accomplished New Orleans jazz guitarist. After years of performing in the city and around the world with other local musicians, Todd was dealt a significant setback last year when he was diagnosed with a serious illness. Thankfully, he has almost fully recovered and is back to playing regularly. Unfortunately, the illness kept him from working for many months and put him in a difficult financial situation. Your donation will help him get back on his feet financially and help him to continue playing New Orleans jazz for years to come.
St. Paul's UCC will host "A Benefit for Todd Duke" from 6-8 pm. Tickets are available for purchase here: http://www.stpaulsuccnola.org/store/p2/Tickets_for_A_Benefit_for_Todd_Duke.html
