Nick and Alison (of Alison Rose¬†fame) are good people – and an important part of the Columbus arts community – who fell on some bad luck in November when, while returning home from a craft show, they hit a patch of black ice on 71 and were in a terrible car accident. While insurance is helping them get back on their feet in terms of transportation, as small business owners Nick and Alison did not have health insurance and the medical bills for Nick’s treatment and surgery (he broke his tibia/knee) are piling up.

There was already a successful on-line fundraising campaign and this Friday there will be a benefit show at The Treebar featuring many acts (see poster above) with close ties to Nick and Alison.

Start off the new year by doing something good and worthwhile for two great people. Music starts around 9:30.
