At first glance, it's hard to see a connection between the Orange County Interfaith Shelter, the Detroit Bar and popular local musicians and DJs. But tonight, they will all be linked by a worthy cause ? a night of music to raise funds for homeless and poverty-stricken people in Orange County. The nondenominational shelter welcomes people "from all backgrounds and walks of life," community outreach coordinator Nicole Barker said. This is the first time the Orange County Interfaith Shelter has collaborated on a benefit concert, which the shelter staff hopes will encourage a younger crowd to take interest in the shelter's activities.

For almost as long as Estancia High School has been in existence Rem Champion has been a charismatic, funny and uplifting presence in its classrooms, students say, but the Marine-turned-teacher hasn’t been around as much lately because he has been taking care of his wife who is sick with cancer.

For Costa Mesa musician Billy Kernkamp, getting into music as a child was as natural as breathing. "My family was always very musical," he said. "My mom sang, my sister sings and all my uncles play guitar. In my earliest memories, my mom would always be singing standards in hotels for World War II veterans, and we were a very social family, always having parties. I was always surrounded by music. I was inspired by listening to all those old standards, and all that early rock 'n' roll, and I've always had such a love for that.

After catching 80 waves in two hours, Dan Forte was pretty sore, but happy. Those waves meant financial help to pay for Jay Thomas’ medical bills, after an accident paralyzed the former surfer in the beginning of March. Forte, also known as Dano, the name of his surf store, promoted the surf-a-thon, a fundraising event that took place Tuesday in Newport Beach. For two hours, Forte surfed and people donated money for each wave he caught. Steve Rogers, a friend of Thomas and Forte and also the official wave counter, was happy with the way the event was going.
