A great cause and Great Day Live

The Hounds are proud to continue our support of the Dona O'Sullivan Fund to Fight Homelessness.

Dona was an indefatigable fighter for social and economic injustice. She recognized the importance of excellent educational and professional development in assuring that front-line social workers are able to furnish effective service and advocacy.

Earlier today, we joined Maria Price (Executive Director of the St. John's Center for Homeless Men and a member of the Dona Fund) on WHAS-TV's Great Day Live to share information about the Fund's annual fundraiser (and to play a couple of tunes).

On Monday, Flanagan's Ale House (934 Baxter Avenue) will donate proceeds from food sales to the Fund. This is an all-day fund-raiser, and Flanagan's opens at 11, so drop by for lunch.

From 6-9 pm, the Hounds will furnish music on the patio (but this is a rain or shine event; if Hurricane Florence sends weather our way, we'll move inside to Ale House banquet area).

Here's a video clip of today's interview and performance. We played John McCutcheon's "Y'all Means All," a great (and timely) song about diversity and compassion. By the way, Maria Price took the photo above.

And here's a somewhat condensed version of Woody Guthrie's "I Ain't Got No Home"

We hope you'll join us.
