I am proud to announce that I am donating a photography package to the silent auction for Hillary Marek and the benefit that will be happening on Sunday March 18th 2012. I hope that you will able to attend the show, its sure to be great music, great friends and a great time.
On Jan. 22, Hillary Marek and her son Ryan Jr (we all know him as
Squishy) were brutally attacked. Hillary was beaten, strangled, and
almost killed. Their attacker was arrested for state felony charges
of: assault on a family member/ assault on a house hold member/
assault by impaired breathing. Due to this violent attack they have
sustained lengthy medical and therapeutic bills, had to move often
while hiding from the attacker, lost all of their belongings, and
are being denied any form of government assistance due to Hillary’s past income for this year. Because she worked/lived with her attacker she has not been able to return to work or home to gather any of her
belongings or get Houston Underground Radio back on the air. All of us in the music industry think that is unfair! We have all know Hillary
to be charitable and the first one to help out anytime some one has
asked with out fail. This time she has not asked us for help but we
are going to anyway.
I am here to introduce myself as the new producer of Houston Underground. My name is Derek Norman. You might know me from my company Advantage Point Video, or the non profit Rockumentary I am working on with Hillary, ‘Heavy in Houston’. I have collaborated with a few bands that are close with Hillary and Squishy, not to mention Concert Pub North’s owner J.D. -who has worked many a benefit with her – who are all wanting to throw something together to help them out in this time of need. We need more bands, a street team to get the invites out all over facebook, twitter, google+ and cellphone blasts, and as many auction-able items as y’all can gather. Also, Hillary and Squishy have no furniture nor anything to move in to a place of their own, so if you have anything to donate let me know. We are going to try to have a truck available to take furniture donations, toys, food, ect. Keep in mind they lost EVERYTHING. Hillary is working a part time job, but it is only covering the cost of daycare, and they have no more savings to stay where they are at.
