Hot Punk City presents:
Avery Pearl Sweet Relief Benefit!

$10.00 suggested donations
Door prizes!


“Hot Punk City (me!) presents the Avery Pearl Benefit at Rudyards in the People’s Republic of Montrose, Houston, Aug. 30th, 4-10 PM! Bands to be announced, so contact me cool kids and iconic rockers (hmmm, Anarchitex, Sugar Shack, Poor Dumb Bastards?) if you desire to gig for the cause, because I will provide drums and hopefully amps too! Avery, the child of incredible ladypunk Mel Hell of Zipperneck (who I profiled two weeks back in the Houston Press and suffers from a chronic pain condition), was recently diagnosed with severe onset Type 1 Diabetes. The family is under financial stress and could use your help with bills and medications and supplies that insurance just won’t cover. So, if you can’t come or play the gig, maybe you can donate to the Go Fund Me link! Blessed are the rockers with conscience!” – David Ensminger

Our sweet Avery Pearl was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on July 6th, 2015. She was treated at Texas Children’s Hospital for 5 days and then released to come home. While we have faith that we will be able to manage this disease, it is somewhat overwhelming at the moment. Her mom, Melissa, is her primary caregiver and main source of financial stability, and Melissa has a chronic health condition herself. We are asking for whatever help you can give in recouping the costs of Melissa’s lost income during the hospital stay, plus Avery’s medications and supplies that her current insurance is not covering. Just need a little “boost” to ensure that we adapt smoothly and peacefully to our new life with Type 1 Diabetes ♡. Thank you!
