Free Kenny Legal Defense Fund Bash
Here's a cross post from Connecticut Bob regarding the Ken Krayeske legal defense fundraiser which is being held tonight in Hartford. I'll make my way to the event after the Chris Dodd Rally at the Old State House.
Who? You! And as many freedom loving friends as you can bring!
What? The Free Kenny Legal Defense Fund Bash, featuring beer, wine, hors d'oerves, music and free speech.
Where? La Paloma Sabanera, 405 Capitol Ave., Hartford (which is the same place where the Blog Wars screening will take place on this Wednesday)
Why? Because lawyering up to defend free speech isn't cheap.
When? Friday, Jan. 19 from 6 to 9 p.m.
How much? $25 suggested donation, or whatever you can give will help defray Ken Krayeske's legal expenses, which arise from his arrest and detainment after photographing Gov. M. Jodi Rell's inaugural parade Jan. 3. If you can't attend, but still want to support the battle to protect civil liberties, click here for info on how to send a check.
For more information, email Steve Colangelo at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 860-508-4740. No RSVP needed.
