Dear Friends,

Greetings as we begin a new year.

The Rex Foundation is pleased and appreciative that the upcoming tour of
The Dead will include a charitable component. A limited number of quality, center floor seats at each venue are being made available for sale, with the proceeds being contributed equally to the Furthur Foundation, Rex Foundation and Unbroken Chain Foundation. We will send an update within the next week to provide the details of the pricing, as well as how to order and obtain these tickets. We look forward to being part of this exciting and momentous tour.
Please join us on Saturday, January 24th at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco for a night with Melvin Seals and JGB band . In addition to the donation of $1 for every ticket purchased, a Silent Auction will be held to benefit the Rex Foundation. Come show your support and bid on priceless memorabilia and special items to add to your collection while enjoying a great night of music.

The Rex Foundation is grateful to everyone that helped make the recent fall events successful. Check out the Programs for the September 27th, November 29th and December 13th events to see the acknowledgements of the contributors. You can also see each event's photo albums on our Facebook page.

If you attended one of our recent events, please post your comments on our Blog.

With high hopes as the new administration begins for a better economy and world peace, the Rex Foundation looks forward to the good results from our continuing support of grassroots non-profit programs. All that we are doing is captured by the Rex Community Caravan , our virtual vehicle for traveling together to connect the arts, community and grassroots philanthropy. Your contributions and participation in our events make all the difference! Help us celebrate 2009 by showing how contributions of $5 or more add up quickly and how we can, together, further what the Grateful Dead started for another 25 years.

Thank you!

Sandy Sohcot - Executive Director &
Theresa Reed-Hayle - Associate Director
