"When I told him I had lung cancer, he kept asking me to do a benefit," said Peggy Claire, a San Diego jazz singer and former KSDS disc jockey who has inoperable cancer. "Charles McPherson will be hosting the benefit. He's a very old friend of mine. I kept saying no because I didn't want to start asking people for money. But about a month ago I said okay...I want a party."
The benefit is April 19 at Humphrey's Backstage Lounge, suggested donation $20. For more information, contact Charles McPherson at 619-563-9892.
