The Gulf Aid benefit concert in New Orleans on May 16, 2010, was a huge success, raising $300,088.65 for the Gulf Relief Foundation! See the list of sponsors and service/equipment donors.
"This was truly an 8-day wonder," said David Freedman, General Manager of WWOZ and a member of the board of the Gulf Relief Foundation. "The Foundation's first distribution will be to the fishing community most impacted by the shutdown of activity in St. Bernard and Plaquemines Parishes."
The fight isn't over—you can still help:
Text "GULFAID 10" to 27138 to donate $10 to Gulf Aid. Replace "10" with the number of US dollars (no $ sign) you'd like to pledge—donate as little or as much as you like. Donors will receive an automated call the next day to fulfill their pledge over the phone via credit card.
Or mail contributions to: Gulf Relief Foundation, P.O. Box 6917, Metairie, LA 70009
