Alex Solla has run into some pretty serious medical problems for the better part of a year. In fact, his last few months have been repeatedly punctuated by the sort of medical emergencies most people don't recover from. This has left him with a stack of medical bills and physically unable to pursue the pottery from which he earns his living. You can read the nitty-gritty of Alex's last few months here if you've got a strong stomach and you're so inclined but I just wanted to post to say this:
If you're anywhere in the Ithaca area this Sunday at around 6pm, you should stop by the Rongo in Trumansburg to support someone awesome who needs--and deserves--a hand. Plus there'll be "two awesome live bands playing and a fantastic auction of art, fine crafts, and lots of fun stuff from local wineries and bed and breakfasts," so you'll be able to grab some wicked stuff.
