Chesapeake Music Hall is planning a supper club cabaret evening May 14 to raise money for the families of victims of the massacre at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo.
The music hall has doubled its admission price to $10 for the night, and will donate all the money from the gate to the Jefferson Memorial Fund, created to help victims' families with funeral, counseling and other expenses. Those who want to can pay the usual $5 admission fee, and that money also will go to the fund.
Fifteen people died and 21 were injured when two students opened fire on their classmates and a teacher before killing themselves April 20 at Columbine High School.
The music hall, on Busch's Frontage Road off U.S. 50 near the Bay Bridge, will open its doors at 7 p.m. The show starts at 8 p.m. with Anita O'Connor at the piano. Terre Fulmer, known as CMH's "queen of causes," suggested this benefit and will sing, along with Sherry Kay and other CMH regulars.
There also will be an open microphone for singers from the audience.
