ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS TO ALL WHOSE GENEROUS EFFORTS MADE POSSIBLE THE WHEEL – A MUSICAL CELEBRATION OF JERRY GARCIA
ON THE ROAD TO WASHINGTON, DC
SATURDAY, MARCH 24, 2012 – THE HAMILTON, WASHINGTON, DC

Presenting the March 24th benefit is a vital part of Rex Foundation efforts.  It is through events like The Wheel that we endeavor to raise funds for grant making while also providing unique musical experiences and the environment for joyful community connection.  All of us at the Rex Foundation want to extend our heartfelt appreciation to everyone who contributed their talents, resources, time and creativity to help make The Wheel a very special evening and great success.
