AES-KAREs - KATRINA FUND SEEKS DONATIONS AT 119TH AES CONVENTION

AES Katrina Audio Relief Effort To Raise Funds For Needy Audio Pros

NEW YORK — 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 October 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 web site "http://www.aes.org/info/aes-kares"

The AES-KAREs effort has gained the support of numerous other industry associations, including NARAS, SPARS, NAPRS, and PAMA.

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.

For further information please visit the AES-KAREs Desk in the Registration Area at The Jacob Javits Center.
