Benefit show for Ashley Pruneau

August 23rd, 2012

hi everybody,

I’d like to tell you about a benefit show for my close friend and neighbor Ashley Pruneau who was maliciously attacked by an unknown assailant in her home on July 1, 2012.
She incurred a great amount of head trauma and thankfully was taken to the hospital in time to have a life-saving surgery.

Ashley is currently recovering with her family in Ohio. She will be undergoing a second surgery in September.
Our wish is to help her as much as possible with her recovery and medical bills so that she can focus on healing.

Please join us for her fundraiser.
