Local musicians will play at Cork Cellars on Thursday evening, December 21, in a benefit fundraiser for the Sisters Cold Weather Shelter (SCWS).

The benefit is organized by Ed Fitzjarrel, who will play with his duo partner Joe Leonardi. Fitzjarrel's company, Metabolic Maintenance Products, will match the funds donated by patrons at the show.

Also performing are Doug & Katie Cavanaugh, and Mike Biggers & Jim Cornelius.

It costs approximately $200 each night the shelter is open, which this year is from November 15 to March 15. Most of the expenses are associated with insurance and the contracted night-shift monitors.

Donations can be made - earmarked specifically for SCWS - online at www.shepherdshouseministries.org/donate/scws, or a check may be mailed to Shepherd's House Ministries, P.O. Box 5484, Bend, OR 97708. Indicate on your donation that it is for the Sisters Cold Weather Shelter.

The shelter, which was launched last winter, rotates between several church locations. Services provided to shelter guests include sleeping mats and bedding, storage bins, hot dinners and light breakfasts with snacks to go, hygiene items, donated clothing, and access to employment support and community services. Activities offered at the shelter include meals, movies, puzzles, cards, conversation, and

community.

The shelter has a page on Facebook, "Sisters Cold Weather Shelter," and a SCWS page on Signup.com. For information about volunteering contact Ronni Duff at ronniduff@aol.com. For other information email loiskaping@bendbroadband.com.
