Subject: Benefits: Don Sineti of Mystic Seaport
From: GUEST,Liam's Brother
Date: 29 Mar 15 - 01:24 PM

Some Mudcatters may know that Don Sineti, shantyman extraordinaire of Mystic Seaport has been contending with a series of health challenges for the last three months that have had him continuously in a hospital or rehabilitation care facility. Don is on the mend now, but the healing process will be long.

Ever-friendly Don is such a modest soul that he would never ask for help but we realize his financial loss must be staggering and that he could use a lot of help, so some of Don's friends have arranged a few benefit concert - chantey blast events to help defray some of his expenses. The dates and venues are below:

Saturday, April 11, 2015 - Mystic, CT - from 2-5pm at the German Club - 54 Greenmanville Ave. (just across the street from the main entrance to the museum.) - Geoff Kaufman is the point person there.

Wednesday, April 22, 2015 - McKinnon's Irish Pub in downtown Hartford (on Asylum St. just east of Trumbull) - Jeanne Freeman believes the event will start about 6pm. The Irish session officially starts at 7pm

Sun. May 3, 2015 - South Street Seaport Museum - from 2-4:30pm - 12 Fulton St. (lobby) - downtown New York City. The New York Packet will host this and make it our first big event back at the seaport since Hurricane Sandy. We will pass the hat once for the seaport and once for Don.

More events are being planned for May including The Main Pub in Manchester, CT.

Please consider attending at one of these events, or if you want to just send a check directly to Don. no amount is too great or small. His address is:

Donald A. Sineti
54 Ellsworth
Bloomfield, CT 06002

Hope to see you at one of these!
Dan Milner

Thank you for starting this thread, Dan. I'm glad to see it here. I plan to be at the one in Mystic.

For anyone unfamiliar with the German Club across from Mystic Seaport, it is also known as Froshinn Hall, and the sign over the door bears that name.

For people who've never been to a chantey sing in Froshinn Hall, you will have to climb a flight of steps with a railing to get inside. Also, there are never enough chairs to go around. I bring a folding beach chair. You can also stand or sit on the floor.

Charlie and Judy, that's wonderful. SRS, maybe the Mystic chantey singers who will be at NEFFA on that Saturday will bring some flyers. I should see Geoff and Craig next Saturday and hope to remember to suggest that. They may even know someone who will go on the Friday night and can bring them then.

Don Sineti is back home now, but it will be a while before he is back to full speed, so I hope many of you can make it to one of these benefits (please note that a few more have been added).
Fair winds,

Let's add another to the list of future benefits.

The monthly sea music sing at The Press Room in Portsmouth, NH on Saturday, May 16, 2015 will be a benefit for Don Sineti.

I'll post it as a separate thread after this month's sing on Saturday.
