One of Pittsburgh's record store owners — and better-known indie-rockers — needs your help.
Karl Hendricks, owner of Sound Cat Records in Bloomfield, has been diagnosed with oral cancer. With Hendricks unable to work this summer and the cost of his medical bills, a GiveForward fundraiser was started for him with his consent. GiveForward is an online fundraising / donation website that focuses on medical costs.
The campaign has a goal of $30,000 and ends Oct. 3. The minimum amount that can be donated is $5 and donations can be made anonymously. A series of benefit shows will be held in August and September and rare items will be auctioned off around that time to benefit Hendricks.
To donate or find out more about Hendricks and the fundraiser, visit the GiveForward page.
