    Comedian Margaret Cho is going on tour! Cho's new comedy music album, Cho Dependent, will be released on August 24, through Redeye Distribution.

    Also, Cho is embarking on a crusade with this tour. After a visit to the Mississippi coast last month, Margaret chose to make the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies a charity beneficiary on her Cho Dependent tour. Margaret has teamed with Live Nation and Frontgate Tickets to offer 10 special VIP packages to her fan club members in each city, which will include show tickets, an autographed DVD and a backstage meet and greet and photo opportunity with Margaret at the show. The VIP packages will cost $55.00 above the regular ticket price and are only available thru the Margaret Cho fan club. Margaret will donate all of the proceeds from the VIP Ticket package sales to IMMS. Live Nation is donating 10 tickets for each of their shows and Frontgate tickets will also be donating a portion of their ticketing fee to benefit the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies. VIP Ticket Packages are available to Margaret Cho fanclub members. Check www.margaretcho.com for all up-to-the minute updates and further info about the special VIP ticket packages.

    As you may know, the Gulf Coast area has faced many challenges, with the most recent being the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies is working tirelessly to protect the coastal environment, marine life, and inform the public of our great treasure.

    IMMS is the only organization on the Mississippi Gulf Coast with the capability and expertise to care for sick and injured marine mammals while simultaneously conducting programs in education, conservation, and research of marine mammals. IMMS has been a participant of the National Stranding Network for over 20 years, and, as a National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) designee, has been involved in the care and rehabilitation of sick and injured marine animals in the Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama sub-region. In fact, the Institute has developed a full service marine mammal research and rehabilitation center (Center for Marine Education and Research www.imms.org) in Gulfport, Mississippi.

    They are currently accepting donations to help the efforts involving the Deepwater Horizon oil spill animal rescue, rehabilitation and other marine animal strandings. Your donations will help IMMS to respond and treat sick and injured sea turtles and dolphins effected by the oil spill. Your gifts will be used for:

    • Veterinary care and husbandry- biomedical supplies and equipment, medical testing such as blood analyses, microbiology, lab procedures (x-rays, ultrasound, surgery, etc.), food, and medicines
    • Field work - boat and airplane time and animal transport equipment
    • Labor expenses associated with all aspects of care for stranded animals.
    • Supplies for rescue, and rehabilitation of stranded marine animals.
