COME ONE AND ALL TO THE ANNUAL PLANET GUMBO BENEFIT ON SATURDAY FEB. 5.
We created the 501c3 Non-Profit Foundation, Planet Gumbo, in January 2003, in order to bring upbeat music and delicious gumbo to folks in homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and disaster shelters. Sustenance for body and soul. Planet Gumbo also works to bring public awareness to homelessness in the United States. Check out the list of shelters where Sauce Boss and the Ingredients have brought their Traveling Gumbo Show.
SAUCE BOSS GUMBO SHOW
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 5, 2011
AMERICAN LEGION HALL, LAKE ELLA DRIVE, TALLAHASSEE, FL 32303
DOORS OPEN AT 8:00 PM. Cover charge is $10 per person.
The event includes a silent auction with art, gift certificates, and really cool stuff from local artists and businesses. Bowls of steaming-hot gumbo will be served to all at the end of the performance. We hope you all can come. But if you can’t make it, you can still be a part of Planet Gumbo by donating online.
This will be our first performance in Tallahassee since my heart attack last October, and I am looking forward to seeing all our buddies, who sent so many good vibes to speed my recovery. The good news is that I’m feeling much better now.
Last summer a camera crew filmed the Sauce Boss in St. Louis MO for eight hours to produce an upcoming segment of a nationally syndicated television show, “My Generation”. The crew accompanied us to a homeless shelter and I talked to them in depth about our work with Planet Gumbo. That show will be broadcast to 60 major television markets in the US, on March 21, 2011.
We just got back from a week at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville. While in Key West, me and The Ingredients also entertained the clients of The Sunrich House transitional homeless shelter. Jimmy Buffett and his two Margaritaville co-owners underwrote the costs of that show. Thanks guys, and best wishes to Jimmy for a speedy recovery.
In the past 21 years, the Sauce Boss has cooked gumbo at concert halls, clubs, festivals, parties, culinary institutes, schools, homeless shelters, and disaster areas to over 175,000 folks…FOR FREE
