Raffle to benefit Red Cup Espresso owner’s family

angelia2.jpgThere’s a new way to help out the son and husband of Red Cup Espresso owner Angelia Paulsen, killed in a crash on I-5 earlier this month, and the organizer says West Seattle rock superstar Eddie Vedder‘s band is involved. Here’s the announcement e-mailed to WSB by Jonathan French:

I am hoping you can spread the word about a raffle we have set up to benefit the O¹Dea family. (Sean & Julian O’Dea) The band Pearl Jam has asked me to donate 2 very rare, autographed limited edition prints signed by the entire band on their behalf. There will be 2 drawings with one win per person. First person who wins chooses the first print. Buy as many tickets as you wish. Tickets are $10.00 each. They can be purchased at Red Cup Espresso (4453 California Ave. SW) (206) 923-0431. Or people can e-mail me (Jonathan French jfrench@alki.net) and I can make other arrangements to get tickets out. Drawing is at 12 pm February 23, 2008. Need not be present to win. Write your name and contact info on the back of one of the tickets and they’ll put it in the bucket. Framed prints can be viewed inside Red Cup Espresso.

As we mentioned earlier this week, Red Cup is currently open 6-2 weekdays, 7-4 weekends.

    Could a better person be so loved? Pearl Jam is West Seattle like Angelia was West Seattle. So many lives influenced by both. I have seen the posters (lithos) and they are beautiful and rare like Angelia was. She loved Julian so much, Sean so much, and everyone else she met. Please return that love to her thru the Viking bank account for Julian and the raffle for the Pearl Jam lithographs at the Red Cup.

    Angelia embodied style, grace and beauty. I never left Red Cup Espresso without a sideways grin and some warmth in my soul, along with a perfect double tall vanilla. I loved you, and miss you so so much. When we see each other again only a double shot, Please?
    I Love You Angelia.

    I had the great fortune of meeting angelia once out in west seattle. Even from the passenger seat of my friend’s truck sitting in a drive thru window,I could feel what a beautiful presence angelia was in this world. She treated me and my friend as she would a member of her family. I feel priveleged to have met her…even that once. My thoughts and love go out to angelia and her family.

    The world we live in is so much hurt because of this, but let us not forget Heaven’s fun is because of Angelia! I Love You Forever!
