Kare-oke At Union Jack's This Weekend
Union Jack's (4915 St Elmo Ave.) is hosting a charity karaoke event Sunday to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphona Society and in memory two North Bethesda brothers who died in a 2009 car crash. Stone and Holt Weeks were 24 and 20, respectively, when they were killed in a chain reaction car crash in Virginia while returning to their parents' home in the summer. The brothers and Walter Johnson High School alums had bright futures, according to many, and regularly volunteered their time. As a senior at WJ, Holt Weeks created a fundraising project for the Leukemia & Lymphona Society that his parents and others have sustained since their death. The karoke event is Sunday, from 8 p.m. to midnight and include prizes, raffles and volunteer opportunities. The minimum suggested donation is $10. Karaoke singers will be competing for more donations during the event, which includes a list of Stone and Holt's favorite songs. Last year's event helped raise more than $9,000 in donations to the Leukemia & Lymphona Society, Rebuilding Together of Washington D.C. and Environment America.
