Benefit Performance for Henley Park Vocalist Sam Smith

Sunday, March 13, 2005, 8pm - 11pm

As you may know, our wonderful vocalist and friend Sam Smith was recently diagnosed with lymphoma. Like many musicians, he is without disability or health insurance. He is in the process of qualifying for Medicaid coverage and is receiving treatment through the University of Maryland Hospital in Baltimore. He is unable to work, however, so we'd like to try to help with the financial burdens his illness has created.

The Henley Park Hotel will donate all profits from this event to Sam's benefit fund, and our musicians will be donating their time. We hope you can join us and make a donation to support Sam. The only thing we ask is that donations NOT be made directly to Sam, since that might impact his ability to qualify for Medicaid. Instead, please make any donations payable to Sam's brother-in-law, Robert Smith, who is helping Sam through this difficult time and will be caring for Sam at his home when he is released from the hospital.

If you are unable to attend but would like to send a donation, please send checks to the following address:

Safiyyah Aleem
Sam Smith Benefit Fund
Henley Park Hotel
926 Massachusetts Ave. NW
Washington, DC 20001

Thank you so much for your support.
