Central Square Records is located in the beach community of Seaside in the Panhandle of Florida. This October, Hurricane Michael, the strongest storm to ever hit the Panhandle, came on shore just east of us & caused devastation that is vast and will take years to recover from. Even as a month has already passed, there are still so many folks in need. There are thousands of families that are homeless, displaced, in shelters & pop up tent cities. So many families have lost everything & are just trying to find their way. Hurricane Michael has brought out the best in our community. Local individuals, organizations and schools have all stepped up to help our neighbors to the east. From handing out hot meals & bag lunches, chain sawing trees, tarping roofs, providing free medical care, new school supplies & clothing to the kids, there is such a need for help.
One of our locals and longtime friends, Prudence Bruns, “Dear Prudence” has offered to help us raise funds by signing 45 copies of the new release of the Beatles’ White Album. We are hoping that y’all could help by holding a contest or raffle by taking donations in exchange for tickets. All of money raised will be split between two of our local organizations that are doing amazing work, the Sonder Project and the Point Washington Medical Clinic.
Prudence Farrow Bruns:
1968 Prudence Farrow Bruns travels to India with her sister, actress Mia Farrow…and the Beatles to study meditation with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. She became so focused on practicing meditation that she would stay inside her room for hours. This prompted Paul and John to serenade Prudence outside her door with a little jingle “…The sun is up, the sky is blue, it’s beautiful, and so are you…”.
Her name is Prudence Farrow Bruns, she received her PhD from Berkley in Sanskrit and she’s an expert and highly respected teacher of Transcendental meditation, an accomplished film producer, speaker and author.
Thank you for everyone’s help & support! We appreciate you all very much!
