We had a slight scheduling omission on our web site that we wanted to update you about. It looked as though we were not playing this weekend on October 2nd – in fact we are and have been scheduled to play The Zu in Dundalk, MD this Saturday. The webmaster somehow left it off the schedule which is strange because he rarely makes mistakes! (And when he does make mistakes, he won’t admit to them readily unless subjected to direct physical torture!) So if you don’t want to come and see Funny Money at The Zu, allow us to suggest a different purpose in attending. Come just to gaze in wonderment and admiration at Jimmy’s new Maryland Drums Drum Kit! It is quite a beautiful sight.

We wanted to let everyone know about a special event that is happening this Sunday October 3rd. The Jason Chalfant Memorial Jam. A day to remember and honor Jason Chalfant, his life, his music and his donation to the Transplant Resource Center of MD. In addition to a jam featuring Jason’s friends and band mates, Jimmy, Mark and Rob will be playing a selection of cover tunes together that Jimmy fondly remembers playing with Jason over the years. Please join us if you can! We are asking for a $5 donation at the door and all proceeds will benefit the Transplant Resource Center of MD. Jimmy has had some commemorative Memorial Jam t-shirts made and the proceeds from the sale of those will also go to the Transplant Center in Jason’s name. So come out and help us remember Jason and participate in a good cause!

The event will be held from 3:00 to 10:00 PM at the following location:

The New Del-Mar Inn
16715 National Pike
Hagerstown, MD

If you can’t make it to the jam, please consider a donation to the Transplant Center in the name of Jason Chalfant. Jimmy and the Chalfant family will greatly appreciate your generosity. Here are the instructions:

Make checks payable to Transplant Resource Center of Maryland, Inc., in the memo portion of the check put “In memory of Jason Chalfant” on it and send your check directly to:

Ms. Latrice Price
Administrative Coordinator
Transplant Resource Center of Maryland, Inc.
1540 Caton Center Drive; Suite R
Baltimore, Maryland 21227

When you do this, a letter from the Transplant Resource Center (TRC) will come to you acknowledging your donation. (7-10 day turnaround)

If anyone is sending cash – enclose a letter with the money to the same address advising that the donation is to be made in memory of Jason Chalfant. The same acknowledgments will be mailed.

Stay tuned to this channel for a follow up in the next few days with some Funny Money news – recording for the new album is within sight!!!

Thanks to you all and we’ll see you at The Zu on Saturday and the Jason Chalfant Memorial Jam on Sunday!
