Jerry Williams (a long-time local video producer also known as TVJerry and host of SIFTER) started his documentary on Dirtwoman 15 years ago. He got sidetracked making a living, but Donnie’s recent health issues have sparked him to crank up it up again.

Everyone who attends will be invited to spend a few minutes on stage with Donnie to pay tribute and share their favorite memories. There will also be a special “private” studio for people who would prefer not to go on stage. People are encouraged to bring any pertinent photos or other memorabilia.

  1. I’ll be there, probably with a guest.
    If the schedule is loose, I’ve got a Donnie story or two to tell — but if you’ve got plenty of speakers, you won’t need me.
    Pay at the door?
