Happy Danksgiving!

This Wednesday at The Doug Dank Project is Carol Mitchell, big-time, long-time local actress (stage and film) and director. Her charity of choice for Doug Dank is Hosea Williams' Feed the Hungry. If you're in Atlanta, I know you know about it. If you're not in Atlanta and able to come to the show, please consider making an easy and secure donation for their HUGE Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless. They are in need, as are the people they are trying to help.
If you are going to be in Atlanta for Thanksgiving, please please consider coming to this show. It's a great way to make a donation, without even really feeling like it's just giving $$. You get a great show as well.
10 pm
