HONORING THE MEMORY AND MUSICAL ASPIRATIONS OF ANDY LOPEZ

From event organizer Darwin Meiners:
“Andy Lopez’s death was a horrible shock. An unimaginable pain to even consider the loss of child. Like many of you I was filled with anger and sadness. I was compelled to do something about it. But I didn’t know Andy and I struggled to find a way to help. Eventually, I stumbled upon a picture online of Andy playing a trumpet. I immediately knew this was the connection. This was a small way to try make something positive that would enrich the community and help us never forget what happened. This event has two goals:
Remind us all to keep what happened in our thoughts and continue to work towards peaceful solutions.
Honor Andy by giving to something that he loved.”
All proceeds will go directly to the music program at Lawrence Cook School where Andy attended. The donation will be made in Andy’s name. You can help us reach our goal several ways:
Purchase a ticket and attend the event
Purchase one of our donation items
Make a donation directly to the cause
Any combination of the above
All donations are through our sponsor KWTF Radio 501(c) #45-5041405 charitable organization.
Your support is tax-deductible

“However, over time, even the deepest outrage tends to subside and many tire of going to rallies and taking part in protest marches. No one wishes for this, but human nature and time being what they are, this just happens.
I say, before this occurs, before coalitions and committees start to disband, I am hoping that they evolve into constructive organizing. People would have to be willing to do the consistent hard work involved in order to organize events, such as concerts, scholarships and other events which would create lasting monuments and programs in the memory of Andy Lopez.” -Elbert ‘Big Man’ Howard
