Fundraiser to help defray Huntsman-Jones gay marriage legal costs 6 p.m. Thursday in Key West

A fundraiser will be held 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday at Bottle Cap Lounge in Key West to help defray legal costs for the case of Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones, the two gay bartenders suing to marry.

Here's the news release:

Mayor Craig Cates cordially invited the Legal team of Restivo, Reilly & Vigil-Farinas to Key West, Florida on Aug 7th to attend the LoveisloveKW kickoff fundraiser at the Bottle Cap Lounge @ 1128 Simonton St Key West Fl, 33040.

Funds are needed to defray legal costs. The attorneys filed a Motion in the Third District Court of appeal to move the case directly to the Florida State Supreme Court on behalf of Aaron Huntsman and William ‘Lee’ Jones.  This motion, if granted, will move the case quickly to the Florida Supreme Court, and will decide this issue of marriage equality for all Floridians, not just those in Monroe County.

Fundraisers are being planned countywide in anticipation of a vigorous appeal and challenges from the State and other anti-LGBT groups.

This kickoff event will be held from 6pm to 9pm Thursday Aug 7.

A future fundraiser is planned for Key Largo, attorney Bernadette Restivo says.
