Thank You so much

I know that blog activity has been slight of late. It's hard to come back here knowing that there are no more updates to receive about Cy. But when I get to feeling down, this blog is a nice reminder of what we can do.

Many thanks to everyone who came out for the CyTunes launch party. It was amazing to be in that place, shoulder to shoulder with all of these terrific folks who didn't skip a beat when it came time to act. Let's not rest yet though. CyTunes will continue to need your help.

If you play music, submit a song. If you listen to music, check back frequently to see what new stuff has been added. If you know people at labels or in bands, encourage and then shame them into participating. CyTunes needs to grow. Only good can come from that. Work your magic, people! Let's set the bar high with this one. The possibilities are endless.

Baking for Cy!

To Friends of Cy Rawls:

The Sheps Center for Health Services Research (UNC Chapel Hill) where I work has raised about $1200 for Cy's bills at a bake and craft sale that I helped organize. We still have some very nice craft items left for sale - 2 child-sized knit hats, some necklaces and earrings, a pair of placemats, and lots of handmade cards and envelopes. If you have any ideas for venues to sell these remaining items, please let me know.

CyTunes will continue.

I just wanted to let everyone know that CyTunes is still going to happen. Although the mission will be changing, it will still be a great way for everyone to remember Cy and honor his contribution to our lives. We are having a volunteer meeting on Wednesday, Oct 22nd at 8pm. If you would like to be involved, please drop me a line.
