How to Organize an Event
Many people want to organize benefit events to help. Here
are some things to keep in mind:
- Decide who you are helping and giving proceeds to.
This can be for residential relief or studio
relief. You can also decide to give 50% to residential relief
and 50% to studio relief. It's up to you, but deciding in advance is
- Clearly communicate what the funds are going toward
on your flyers, emails, posters, media listings, etc.... People like
to know how their contribution will help. For example, "proceeds
will be used for LAVA House studio relief" or "proceeds will
be donated to LAVA House residential relief".
- Communicate with us about the details of your event,
so we can list it on this site. Contact Aron Conaway (502-758-8338)
with questions, and email details to Aron here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please visit the "Help Now / List
of Needs" page to make informed decisions about what to do with

- Many THANK YOUS to Evan Billiter, who heard about our situation from
Alabama, contacted us to find out what we need, and then threw an event
for us. Evan and his friends use a space called the Lowe Mill to as
an environment similar to the LAVA House concept . They have an art
group in their building too, called the Flying
Monkey Arts Collective . Evan pulled together several great bands
and asked for tools and supplied from the other artists, and then bought
some more with the funds from the show. Then all by himself, he delivered
the stuff to the LAVA artists.
It is truly inspiring to have someone from another city
act so selflessly and work so hard to help. Evan ,Lowe Mill, Flying
Monkies.... Thank you so much!. Everyone enjoyed claiming stuff to
get them going again. Hopefully a creative relationship will come
out of this all when the ashes settle.
