JAMES McMURTRY AUCTION
TO BENEFIT HURRICANE RELIEF
Proceeds from Ebay Auction will be donated to the American Red Cross
HOUSTON, Texas — The James McMurtry band definitely got into the Halloween spirit at their regular midnight show at Continental Club last Wednesday. The band members dressed up in full costume as the cast of The Wizard of Oz (James donning a plaid dress and ruby slippers in his portrayal of Dorothy).
Now, to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy, McMurtry is auctioning off his ruby slippers, which he personally hand-painted and autographed. Proceeds will be donated directly to the American Red Cross Hurricane Relief Fund at the end of the auction (Nov. 15, 2013) to help our friends and family get back on their feet.
