The show, 3 POETS FOR A CAUSE, will be premiering in Loveland, Colorado at the popular venue, The Mandolin Cafe on August 27th at 7:00 p.m. The show is a fundraiser for the Angel House Homeless Shelter.

3 POETS FOR A CAUSE will feature the work of published Front Range Poets Bruce Arlen Wasserman, Jack Martin and William Stanford, each reading from new work as well as old favorites.
