Last month, the Weekly published a cover story on G.I. Joe Search and Rescue, an OC group that treks through canyons, creeks, rivers and forests to look for those who've gone missing. By tying themselves to ropes and poking around in the water, these volunteers helped recover the bodies of 20-year-old Joe Le in the San Gabriel River, and 22-year-old Scott Neacato and 25-year-old Minh Tu Nguyen in the upper Kern River. "To a family, it's not just a body," says Victoria Le, the sister of Joe and founder of the organization. "It's a son, a daughter, a mother, a father. No one deserves to feel that pain."
The event will feature local music artists, includingAndrew Figueroa Chiang

, along with a fashion show with items available for purchase. Attendees will also get a chance to learn more about the group's rescue efforts.
