on behalf of Stephen Carpenter
 PORTLAND, ME
Stephen Carpenter, Dark Follies’ music director, talented musician, carpenter, friend, beloved father, and person of generous heart was struck by a motor vehicle while out running on July 30th. He was rushed to Maine Medical Center with life threatening injuries.

He has always been there to lend an hand, share his knowledge, and extend his friendship. He has touched so many in the music and dance world and now he needs our help.

We are organizing a benefit on his behalf on August 21st at Mayo Street Arts in Portland, Maine, to aid with his medical bills and lost wages.  However, several folks who are unable to attend have asked how they might still be able to help. For those who can't make it or who just want contribute a bit more we have established this page.   Whether you can give $5 or $500 every little bit helps.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity.

We had a pretty good turnout at b.good Portland last night for Steve's fundraiser. It will be a few days before we know the total but we did raise $57 in extra donations!

Thank you to all who showed up to support Steve and who continue to send him love.

Wow! You all have done it. Thanks to you we reached our original goal of raising $9,000 for Steve!

He's going to need a lot more help though and so we are doubling the goal from $9,000 to $18,000.

There are many ways you can help reach this new goal:

1. Donate directly to the gofundme page.

2. If you are local to Portland come on down to b.good Portland (15 Exchange Street) tonight where from 6:00pm to 9:00pm they will be donating 10% of their food sales to support Steve!

3. On September 19th, Naya's Trance Belly Dance will be hosting their annual dance gala at Portland Ballet - proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to Stephen! www.nayastrance.com/mirage.htm

Keep the love coming in!!!

When we began this campaign we set a goal of $9,000. today, thanks to your generosity, we are only $22 away from that goal.

Stephen is going to need far more help than just what $9,000 will do so please, keep those contributions flowing in.

A reminder too that there are two more fundraisers in the works:

Wednesday 8/26, b.good Portland: https://www.facebook.com/events/115025435511423/

September 19, Mirage: https://www.facebook.com/events/1116892238338857/

Let's keep showing our love for this wonderful man :-)
