Members of the Ice House musician community are holding a benefit for Charles Shirley, co-owner of the Ice House, from 3 to 7 p.m. Sunday, April 18, at Center/Stage in Evergreen. Refreshments, wine and beer will be available. The suggested donation amount has not been decided.
Shirley has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and is without insurance. The proceeds will be used to pay for his $30,000 surgery. As a result of the diagnosis, Cindy and Charles Shirley have decided to offer the Ice House for sale for $175,000.
