The Spirit of the Giving SHINES Upon the Adoption Coalition of Texas – Byrd and Street present the “Mistletoe Jam” Benefit
I wanted to share something truly heart warming and special. Yesterday I sent out the email asking for financial support for the Adoption Coalition of Texas – people to give to our effort. Last night I got an email from Tommy Byrd and Kathy Street of Byrd and Street (www.byrdandstreet.com) and they decided to do the “Mistletoe Jam”. They were quickly securing a venue and other musicians to join them. I am so incredibly touched by their generosity and offer to support us. Many of you may remember the song “My Forever Family” (you can listen to it on our home page at www.adoptioncoalitiontx.org) – Byrd and Street recorded the song (written by Tommy Byrd and Andy Rasmussen).
A big thanks to Tommy and Kathy, we need more people like you!
So, if you enjoy music, and even if you don’t, come join Byrd and Street at Jovita’s in South Austin, Dec 14.. Let’s show them support for supporting us (what comes around, goes around J ). I pasted below information Byrd and Street distributed in an email to their supporters!
