GIVE: Help Us Support Them: KVIL's Gene and Julie partner with Sambuca to Host An Aurora Relief Effort
Here's the scoop from my fellow Dallas-lover Cynthia at Oh So Cynthia.
"Gene and Julie Gates from KVIL's "The Gene and Julie Show" invite you to join them this Thursday, July 26 at Sambuca in Uptown from 4-7PM for a fundraiser to help the victims of last week's movie theater massacre in which 12 people died and many others were injured. Joining them will be Megan Saunders.
Megan and 5 of her best friends friends were at the theater that night and sat side-by-side in the fourth row from the front, engrossed in a movie they'd long anticipated, about a superhero facing down evil. They were there to celebrate Megan's 20th birthday. Then an emergency exit door burst open, and suddenly evil was no longer the stuff of comic books and summer blockbusters. It would take only seconds for these childhood friends to realize the horror that was about to unfold.
Megan will share her story with Gene and Julie tomorrow morning on 103.7 Lite FM around 8:25AM. You can join Gene and Julie, Megan and a host of local celebrities, including Sean Lowe of "The Bachelorette", Steve Kemble, LeeAnne Locken, Amy Vanderoef and MORE at Sambuca on Thursday evening to help rise funds for her town.
Let's show her that Texans have a heart as big as our state and help raise much needed funds for all of the victims of this senseless crime.
