One of the last events to kick off during Stonewall Week is “Music for a Cause,” an evening on Sunday packed with female musicians performing to raise money for the Atlanta Lesbian Health Initiative.

But it’s not just a general fundraiser for the women’s health group. Proceeds from this three-hour event benefit ALHI’s Health Fund, which provides health screenings for under- and un-insured women. Organizers hope to raise a few thousand dollars to pay up to $150 per woman for tests that include physicals and pap smears.
