Chicago soundman and musician Gary "Elvis" Schepers, profiled in the Meter on January 6, is currently in an assisted living center after several weeks of hospitalization to fight a flesh-eating bacterial infection. Schepers is uninsured, and his medical expenses have already topped six figures. The organizers of this benefit series have also established a Gary Schepers trust, and donations can be made in person at any National City bank or mailed to the branch at 1520 N. Damen, Chicago, IL 60622. For more information call 773-227-4433.
