When Fate steps in and the Starrs align: Two Beatles. One Piano. And an opportunity to make a difference.
On my last post, I spoke of Destiny, and how sometimes the planets and the stars align in such a way that we cannot ignore them. Little did I know that the universe had yet more Starrs to shine: those of Ringo Starr and the All Starr Band, and an upcoming concert on October 17.
In case you’ve missed the backstory to this post, you can find it here: Sir Paul McCartney, Destiny and Hope for the Future.
So here, for your consideration:
The two surviving members of The Beatles each will be performing less than a week apart, just 45 minutes away from Slidell, Louisiana—Sir Paul on Oct. 11 in New Orleans, Ringo on Oct. 17 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Biloxi.
What are the odds?
And artist Lori Gomez finished painting her piano, a tribute to The Beatles, just days ago, in preparation for the upcoming Home Is Where the Art Is gala, an annual fundraiser held in November for the East St. Tammany Habitat for Humanity.
How perfect is that?
So the quest is on as we reach for the Starrs, in the hopes of being granted the autographs that can help turn this piano into a home for a deserving veteran.
Granted, it’s not a mission that will change the entire world. But it will change the world for one family.
Dear Universe, A little more assistance here, please. All we need is love.
The East St. Tammany Habitat’s Home Is Where the Art Is auction and gala will be held on Friday, November 21, 7 to 11 p.m. at the Northshore Harbor Center in Slidell, Louisiana, a suburb of New Orleans. Should the coveted autograph be secured, the piano will be listed on CharityBuzz, with 100% of proceeds dedicated to the EST Habitat Veterans’ Build. The purchaser’s donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. For more information or for tickets to the gala, contact Debbie Crouch at (985) 639-0656.
