As fundraisers for highly depressing issues go, this one looks like fun! At the Dungeon next week (March 15) is a charity ball put on by a well-meaning college kid to raise funds for Kids Beating Cancer, the local, it's-all-there-in-the-name organization that encourages people to donate bone marrow and matches it with children in need.

To raise money and awareness (minimum $5 donation gets you in), Jeff and Chris (i.e. the other Big C) from Mumpsy, Bob on Blonde, the Plush Monsters and Colors are putting on a show! Why the Dungeon? Cause this is a UCF school project for a marketing kid. But a worthy one! Comedians Nick Pupo, who opened for Tig Nataro when she came through, and Clayton Anderson, who hates the Internet, will take on the challenge of being funny while asking for marrow. Good luck all!
