Jon Bunch Memorial Fund
Jon has a 12-year old son, Jack, that he would have loved to see go to college. This fund is being established with the future cost of Jack's higher learning as its primary objective. Second, Jon's family will need assistance with funeral-related expenses. Finally, Jon's mother conveyed that her son always had a passion for helping kids in need and so a portion of the proceeds will be allocated to a children's charity of the family's choosing.
Any amount you can offer is greatly appreciated and will be put to use toward the above three goals. Additionally, several of us are in the early stages of planning several music-related benefit events in Jon's memory, which will hopefully ease his family's burden somewhat at least financially.
Thank you in advance for your love and support.
My good friend Tony was kind enough to encourage me to write about the experience of helping organize the Jon Bunch Memorial Benefit Concert back in March. The piece was originally published in England in his zine, Suspect Device. Here's a link in case you'd like to check it out. Thanks again for reaching out to me, Tony!
Our friends at Revelation Records have continued their support with online sales and auctions and raised over $5,000 in April - Thanks so much to Jordan, Vique, and the rest of the Rev Crew for your ongoing efforts!!
We also have a date and venue confirmed for the east coast show - Saturday, June 25 at the Theater of Living Arts in Philly featuring Sense Field with special guest vocalists, Further Seems Forever, and acoustic Texas is the Reason performed by Garrett Klahn. More bands to be announced.
Thank you all again for your ongoing support!
My condolences to the Jack and the Bunch family and all his friends around the world. Jon was a nice guy who always smiled. He will be missed but his great music lives on! Thanks for doing this fundraiser Casey! Marc - Once I Cry
Casey - please continue to keep us posted on the benefit show. We are in the bay area and would love to come down to celebrate Jon and give hugs to old friends. Thanks for all you are doing.
Kuddel, we tried to get PayPal access but GoFundMe couldn't do it. Casey tried the whole day yesterday. As an alternative I could offer you, you wire the money to me and I'll donate in your name. However, we're still trying to get a solution for my fellow Europeans.
Hi Casey...i guess, Paypal will be a good idea for "europeans" ... Kuddel MIOZÄN RIP Jon!
