From Bluegrass Today:

44K for Tony Rice so far

We just got a good news/bad news update from Terry Pinkham. She and her husband, Jeff, are managing the grass-roots effort to raise money to assist Tony Rice with living expenses while he is trying to recover his voice, and receive treatment for the arthritis that has taken away his ability to play guitar.

The good news is that since this campaign started less than a month ago, they have received donations of $44,000. In that number are 40 people who have agreed to a recurring monthly donation via PayPal (or credit card).

What a great response in such a short time!

The bad news isn’t really all that bad. It’s just that Terry has received about $2,000 in checks made out to the Tony Rice Foundation, and they need to be made out to Tony Rice. All are being sent back to the donors with a return SASE, so if you sent a check made out to the Foundation, be on the lookout for the check coming back. If you will destroy your original check and send one back made out to Tony, it will be much appreciated.

A Few More Words About Tony Rice

Earlier this month, I threw around the number of $50,000 – which I simply pulled out of the air – suggesting that it would be wonderful to raise that amount by the end of the year. If folks make a big push today and tomorrow, that goal is within reach.

If you’d like to contribute to the Tony Rice fund, you may do so by clicking the PayPal button below, or by sending a check (made out to Tony Rice) to:

Tony Rice Foundation/Pinkham
PO Box 914
Odessa, FL 33556
