Sunday with Morey

Sad news and a call for your support.

Morey Goldstein (above left in his Modern Rocketry days), probably best known for playing Richard Carpenter opposite his wife, Katie Guthorn, as Karen Carpenter in A Karen Carpenter Christmas, a seasonal feature for so many years at The Marsh, has stage 4 Glioblastoma (brain cancer), and is expected to live 2-3 months.

Writing to friends and family, Guthorn announced that there will be a benefit to help cover Morey’s medical expenses this Sunday, May 4 at the Bayview Boat Club, for a celebration of his music. SF Chronicle music critic Joel Selvin is also working on a show for Monday, June 23, at the Great American Music Hall. That may well turn into a memorial.

Guthorn writes that her husband is doing well with two home health attendants, but their insurance doesn’t cover them, and they add up to $1800-2000/week. There’s a Web site set up for people to make speedy donations: http://www.bigbangbeat.com/moreyg.html

Guthorn concludes: “We’ve appreciated all your prayers and good thoughts, lovely food and groceries, visits and cards. I can’t thank you enough. This is an extremely difficult time. The goal is to help Morey be as happy and comfortable as possible.”

Here’s the info on the benefit:
