Jon McIntire, former manager of the Grateful Dead and New Riders of the Purple Sage, was also a longstanding member of the Rex Board of Directors, continuing until his passing as an active member of the Rex Advisory Board.Â On Thursday, February 16th, 2012, Jon McIntire passed away. We feel a profound sense of loss. We want to honor Jon and the tremendous gifts he has contributed to all of us who have had the privilege and pleasure of knowing him.Â In early 2001, at the Board meeting to plan the renewal of Rex, we began discussing our first benefit that would take place on December 1. Â Jon said softly, yet forcefully: â€œThis must be a jewel of an event, tasty in every detail!â€ Inspired since by these words, we look forward to December 1, 2012 being a tribute worthy of Jonâ€™s description.
Set up in festive cabaret style with reserved seating on the floor, The Fillmore, with its beauty and iconic connection to the Grateful Dead, sets the stage for this special occasion.Â At the pre-concert reception, enjoy hearty finger foods and beverages as you reconnect with friends and family. Your generous reception/concert ticket purchase of $250, $500, or $1,000, of which all but $75 is a charitable contribution, will fund Rex Foundation grant making.Â As a special way to celebrate Jon McIntireâ€™s ongoing community legacy, all of the Uncle Johnâ€™s Band $1,000 tickets proceeds will be used to fund $5,000 grants in Jonâ€™s memory. Â All Uncle “Jonâ€™s” Band contributors will be acknowledged on our website as Jon McIntire Grant Funders.Â Consider organizing one or more tables of 5 and help us quickly fund grants connected with Jon.
Join us on December 1 as we come together to celebrate the music and the benefits of our collective energy.
