The Aurora Picture Show, located here in the Heights, has an event next week for Katrina and Rita relief that sounds interesting:

The Pink Satin Suit
A Documentary about New Orleans photographer Johnny Donnels
By Anastasia and Will Lyman
Nearly sixty years ago in New Guinea, a homesick New Orleans kid swore the Army would be the last employer he ever had. Today, Johnny Donnelsí photography is known all over the world. The last of the great Bohemians, Johnny himself is an icon of the French Quarter, where he runs a gallery filled with his own art.
Proceeds from this screening benefit KATFund, a grant-making fund established by the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, to provide financial support for visual artists in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama who were affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
Red beans and rice donated by Treebeards.
