AES Katrina Audio Relief Effort To Raise Funds For Needy Audio Pros
The 119th AES Convention will launch an industry-wide charity effort to collect funds for audio professionals whose lives and businesses have been devastated by the recent hurricane disasters along the Gulf Coast.
AES-Katrina Audio Relief Effort (AES-KAREs) will collect donations from exhibitors and show attendees throughout the Convention, scheduled for Oct. 7-10 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York. A special AES-KAREs desk has been established in the show registration area. Donations can also be made via the AES-KAREs link: http://www.aesnashville.org/aes-kares.htm.
Funds raised at the convention will be administered as a Katrina Victim Specific Account established by NERF (Nashville Engineer Relief Fund), a non-profit charitable corporation. A KARE committee is being established to collect applications for assistance and to disburse these funds to affected audio professionals.
There is a forum set up to communicate information regarding this tragic event.
