Dave Perlowski Vice President The earliest memory I have of wanting to play music was as a toddler playing the pots in my parents' kitchen, pretending I was Gene Krupa and though my mom's intent was that I learn the piano, both parents relented and set me on a percussive life path when I was in the 4th grade.  Through the angst of my teens, to the heartache of breakups and even through the pressure of managing a national sales organization music has been and remains my anchor and I can't imagine what a day without it would be like. Jumping into RMMR to help the thousands who have lost their means of expression and livelihood at the hand of tragedy makes more sense to me than nearly any other organization I've ever supported. We have much to do, but it's not work when it's from the heart.

WHERE WILL THE FUNDING GO?

 

RMMR has established a relief fund in partnership with MusiCares®, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization created by the Recording Academy 25 years ago to safeguard the health and well-being of all music people. A four-star charity and safety net in times of need, MusiCares offers confidential preventative, recovery, and emergency programs to address financial, medical and personal health issues. Assistance includes basic living expenses such as shelter, food, utilities, and transportation, medical expenses, clothing, instrument and recording equipment replacement, relocation costs, home repairs, debris removal and more. MusiCares’ previous disaster relief efforts have included victims of the Gulf Coast hurricanes, the Nashville floods, and Hurricane Sandy. Their Hurricane Katrina efforts alone provided a combined $4.3 million in aid to more than 3,500 clients. RMMR will donate 100% of proceeds to MusiCares to distribute on behalf of the citizens of Colorado. RMMR has no paid employees as a 100% volunteer organization, so all proceeds go directly to the cause.
