Tibetan Rug donated by Himalayan Rug Traders, 529 Second Street, Eureka, California, 95501.
The rug depicts a Golden Dragon flying throught the clouds, a protective symbol. It is 3x6 feet in size, 100 knots per inch.
This hand-knotted wool rug was made by a Tibetan weaver in Kathmandu, Nepal. Himalayan sheep wool has a high lanolin content which makes the rug very soft and naturally repels stains. The dyes are color-fast and the rug can be washed with soap and water. These rugs are made to last a lifetime.
Every pledge today will be entered in a raffle for this rug. As soon as $5,000 are reached, the The raffle drawing will be held this afternoon at 5 pm. Donation is welcome but not necessary to be entered in the raffle. Call (707) 923-3911 or (800)568-3723, or pledge online now.

KMUD and the Mateel Will Host the 2012 Holloween Boogie, Saturday, October 27 at the Mateel Community Center
On Saturday, October 27th the Mateel Community Center and KMUD Radio will host the 2012 Halloween Boogie at the Mateel in Redway. One of the most rockin’ parties of the year, the Halloween Boogie always attracts a crazy cast of characters in costume and therefore a costume contest is a must! Winners are chosen from several categories among those decked out in their Halloween best. This year’s Boogie, will feature Diego’s Umbrella, Monkey and Candelaria, three very talented favorites of the Mateel’s 2012 Summer Arts & Music Festival.
There are two kinds of music fans in this world: those who love Diego’s Umbrella and those who soon will. Celebrated as San Francisco's Ambassadors of Gypsy Rock, they effortlessly blend harmonized shredding, marching drums, and gang choruses with an energy, fire and a refinement that reflects their years of experience on the road in the U.S. and Europe. The group's uncanny gift for pleasing crowds, from standard clubs to huge festivals such as High Sierra and Outside Lands, has earned them a breathless and ever-expanding following across the United States and Europe. It’s that connection with other cultures, they say, that continually informs their aesthetic, a mix of klezmer, flamenco and punk rock all blended to pop perfection.
Monkey, is a 6 piece high-energy organ driven, Ska/Reggae group, whose intense live shows and rock-steady rhythms never fail to get the crowd dancing wherever they go. The group has won several awards, including the prestigious California Music Award. Monkey has toured the U.S., Great Britain, Canada, Mexico and Japan. While constantly recording and touring, performing over 200 shows per year, Monkey has produced 3 full-length albums, and has also been featured on over 25 compilations, video games and film soundtracks, including the new independent horror-comedy Russ Meyer tribute “Pervert the Movie” on Stag Films. They are currently working on their Japanese release, “Monkeyska” (Disc Union Ltd).
Candelaria, with their unique blend of dub studio techniques and reggae style bass lines applied to traditional cumbia and other Colombian rhythms, has created dance music with electronic sensibilities and a live feel that keeps the dance floor hot and the party moving. Independent and cutting edge, Candelaria resists the trend of computer driven programmed beats and effects and has actually gone the opposite direction. All of their music, as well as recordings, are performed live and all effects are done in real time. Candelaria is at the forefront of the global cumbia movement with present and past members from Colombia, Puerto Rico, Mexico, El Salvador, Canada, Malaysia, and Peru, Candelaria reflects many cultures and the diversity of the San Francisco Bay Area.
Start planning your costume now! But with or without a costume, don’t miss this year’s Halloween Boogie at the Mateel Community Center with three of the hottest dance bands around, Diego’s Umbrella, Monkey and Candelaria! Doors open at 7pm. Beer, wine and snacks will be available. Tickets will be available in advance at the usual outlets_$23 in advance, and $25 at the door and online at Mateel.org. For more information call KMUD at 923-2513 or Mateel at 923-3368 or visit websites at KMUD.org or Mateel.org.
