“Many people who know Elise have asked how they can help show support for her and her family as they cope with her illness,” said Matt Galvin, owner of Pagliacci Pizza. “Pagliacci is a large fun-filled family, but at a time like this, we come together to help take care of one another. By hosting the ‘Night for Elise,’ I see it as the least we can do for her and her family.”

The ‘Night for Elise’ will feature the bands Iceage Cobra, Thunderbird Motel, and Rad Touch. The musicians include current and former Pagliacci crewmembers. Tickets are $5.00 and the event is open to the public with all proceeds going toward Elise’s medical bills and creating a trust fund for Jasper. Donations also can be made directly to Elise Kinnamon, c/o Pagliacci Pizza, 423 E. Pike Street, Seattle, WA 98122.
