• This note was sent via e-mail this weekend to a variety of media and beverage industry people by Frank Coleman, senior vice president of the Distilled Spirits Council of the U.S.
"Due to the growing threat to our nation from Hurricane Gustav, the sponsors of the 'Spirits of Minneapolis' event (scheduled for) Monday night have made a collective decision to change the event into the 'Spirits of the Gulf Coast,' shifting the focus to a fundraiser for for the American Red Cross Hurricane Relief Fund.
"To that end, we will have a senior Red Cross representative in attendance and we will encourage everyone to make a donation to the Fund at the door. In addition, the event sponsors will make a large matching contribution and present a check at 10:30 p.m.
" ... We want to let you know that the show will go on on Monday night at Solera, 900 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, MN, 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. We all pray together for the safety of our fellow citizens in the affected region."
