Eat Spaghetti, Help Houston Gay Leader Tim Brookover Fight Cancer
Tim Brookover has been the editor of OutSmart magazine, a key staffer for city councilmember Sue Lovell and is currently president of the Houston GLBT Community Center.
He's also fighting cancer at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, and racking up some dismaying bills doing so.
So friends and supporters are throwing a spaghetti-lunch fundraiser for him Sunday at his church, Bethel United Church of Christ, on Shepherd near Washington Avenue.
Who doesn't like spaghetti? Especially when it's for a good cause for a good guy?
