NASA hosts fire victim fundraiser

The Native American Student's Association at the U of L is organizing a fundraiser in support of the Shouting-McGinnis family, who lost their home to the Nov. 27 grassfire that swept across the prairie.

The event will be held Thursday, Dec. 15 from 4 to 11 p.m. in the Students' Union Ballroom and feature talented local musicians. Dubbed the Phoenix Benefit Rock Show, it's an event that suits the Shouting-McGinnis family well, as their two sons are musicians on the local rock scene.

"If it happened to my family, I would want to be shown the same compassion and support," says NASA president Abby Morning Bull to the Lethbridge Herald. "This family had put their hearts and souls into their home; to lose it at such a crucial time in the year is tough."

Admission to the event is $2 at the door or through a donation of any kind. For more information on the Phoenix Benefit Rock Show, call 403-715-5616 or e-mail
