Hey all you Loft patrons, donors, volunteers, staff, etc, plus all you music lovers — this sounds like a great combination of food, fun and great music, all to help out the independent Loft Theater. Aid the Loft by attending Loft Aid. As one of their longest serving volunteers (since Fall 2008) I recently was awarded a Best Blogger gift bag at our Volunteer Appreciation party. So I truly believe in aiding the Loft.
