Light Morrison’s bench


"Come on, baby, light my bench." That’s what Jim Morrison, of the Doors, would be singing today. We’ve raised the money to restore the bench in Jackson Park, where Morrison hung out as an Alameda High School student. Now, we want to illuminate the bench once it is repaired.

If you want to light the bench for Jim, go to, enter "Alameda" in the box at the top, hit "enter," and click on Morrison’s face. We have until May 5 to raise $1,600. The name of anyone contributing over $500 will be inscribed on a plaque at the bench. Thank you.
