in memory of drew goren

Though I never personally got to meet him, Drew Goren sounds like a he was a pretty amazing individual. I urge you to come out and support this important cause with what will I'm sure be a great benefit concert June 30th at Luna Lounge, curated by Doug from the GoStation.

Drew Goren, a gifted photographer and friend, passed away on December 19th, 2006. In March of 2005, the unimaginable news that Drew had stage IV cancer at the young age of thirtyone came as a huge shock to everyone who loved him. Yet, still Drew would continue on to work through the last year and half, almost harder then ever. He often squeezed photo shoots inbetween chemo sessions. And although it began to get painful for him to even walk his subjects were never even aware of his disease; he always preferred they not make allowances. Drew worked because he loved photography, not because he had to. A fund has been established for Drew's 5 year-old daughter, Nina, and her mom, Julia. Contributions can be made through the Talbert Family Foundation and are tax-deductible. Please designate your funds to "Drew Goren Memorial Fund."
