Charity Event to support Wildfire Victims

Hey guys not sure who is up on the news for Central Texas, but we got a few wildfires going around that had started yesterday. We have a lot of local friends who have been directly affected by these events and we want to put help raise money and supplies to help the families involved. We have a monthly show that we have here in Austin that we are trying to work with to set up in effort to aid those who need it. It will probably be in a few weeks depending on what we can set up. Im also going to get a hold of a few local clubs to see how big we can make this. If you want to help with this please let us know. We are looking for donations of all sorts like non-perishable food and clothing. The usual type of stuff needed. Over 400 homes have already been lost. I'll update this thread as we get more info figured out.

That major sucks ...

Um, I don't know if I would consider the post cool, deezx5 ... but it's definitely good of you to inform the TX members of what's going on, Alex.

My prayers to the families of lost homes and to the hard working firefighters trying to stop the blaze. To all be safe and let's hope no one gets seriously harmed by this.

Very cool of Alex to put this together I meant fire is not cool. I'm currently worried that the field of dry grass, scrub bushes and cedar trees across the street from my house may be next to burn
