Charlie Murphy Memorial Service September 1

Join us for a memorial for Charlie at the Whidbey Institute on Whidbey Island on Thursday, September 1, 2016. Charlie always maintained that: “The people who do good work in the world throw the best parties!” Help us throw a great party for Charlie.

The memorial will include a service at 6 p.m. followed by a party and an open mic in Charlie’s memory. We will have the Whidbey Institute to ourselves all day Thursday until mid-day on Friday. Rooms and camping are available at the Institute on Wednesday and Thursday nights. The memorial service will begin at 6 p.m., but you are welcome to arrive anytime during the day to help set up the event, enjoy walking on the trails, spend time with friends, or make decorations in the art barn. Because of the challenges of handling parking for such a large event, please plan to arrive by 5 p.m. or earlier if possible.

Food and drinks: Please bring a dish of finger foods and wine, beer, or non-alcoholic drink to share.

Open Mic

PYE Global senior trainer Nadia Chaney will emcee the Open Mic. If you’d like to perform, please email Nadia. Let Nadia know who you are, your connection to Charlie, and what you’d like to do. The pieces should honor Charlie in some way and be 3 minutes or less.

Because of the large number of FABULOUS, creative individuals in our circles, we may not have time for everyone to share. Nadia will curate the offerings ahead of time and will let participants know by August 28. Nadia will be looking for variety of pieces performed by people from various parts of Charlie’s life, so if you are not included, please don’t take it personally. It’s simply a matter of time.
