On Thursday night at 9 p.m. at the Highland Inn Ballroom on North Highland Avenue, the Gaye Blades — which includes members of the Black Lips — and Noot d’ noot and a "special surprise guest" will headline a night of raffle giveaways to benefit local musician and DJ Chris Devoe and Rachael Spiewak from Rachael Spiewak, a community activist. Guest DJs will also provide music throughout the night.

Criminal Records, Youngblood Gallery, Sweetgrass Salon, Charis Books & More and other local businesses are contributing items for the raffle.

"Our tagline for the event is ‘It’s a neighborhood watch,’" says Suzy Moran, one of the fundraiser organizers. "We want it to be a benefit [for the victims], but also a way for the community to come together."

Organizers are requesting a $5 donation at the door to help the victims.
