Roy's Big 40 Oboe Replacement Fund

Roy's Big 40 Oboe Replacement Fund

Hi All-
As many of you know, Roy's oboe was stolen a few years ago, when our apartment was robbed. He has been able to play for the past several years thanks to the wonderful generosity of our great friend who had an extra oboe for Roy to borrow (thank you, Jared!!).

Roy's 40th birthday is upon us this November and I thought it would be such a wonderful surprise if we could all come together to raise funds to gift him his very own brand new oboe.

New Loree professional oboes cost between (approx.) $7,000 and $10,000 depending on the model. As they are such a personal item and each oboe plays a bit differently, he would need to try several before selecting the perfect Roy Oboe.

If you can, and feel compelled to do so, please contribute whatever amount you are able to. Every bit will help.

Any money raised in excess of the cost of the oboe will be utilized to purchase oboe related items/supplies.

I know Roy will be utterly thrilled and completely surprised if we can do this for him.  We'll be accepting donations through Saturday, November 4th.

Many thanks in advance for your generosity!


ps. Please forward this on to others as there are may people in Roy's world that I don't know how to reach. Thank you!!
