We'd like to raise so money to get flowers sent to the memorial to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Randy's passing in March on behalf us members here at RR.TK.
Donnie has kindly agreed to take care of this.
Donnie's idea is a polka dot guitar made out of chrysanthemums with 'Randy Rhoads' on the fret board.
Donnie can get this done with a reputable florist and sent out to the cemetery on March 19th. It will cost $350.

We are asking for donations of 5 to 10 dollars from each person who wants to donate. Please no less than $5 and people who wish to donate more than $10 feel free. :)
If we exceed the desired amount, the rest of the money will go to the Rhoads scholarship fund.
Donations please be made via pay pal to this account: :
EDIT:
Since making this post I've had many pm's asking questions about donating, so I'll try and answer all questions here.
Here is a link to paypal: http://www.paypal.com It's free and easy to register.
Once you have an account, log in and click 'send money'. copy/past Donnie's email adress in the 'recipient' box and just follow on screen instructions.
If you don't have an account and don't want one, contact Donnie via his email or pm's via the board to ask about donating in other ways.


When donating, please leave not only your real name but your screen name here on RR.TK. You can do this in the 'comments' box in paypal.
If you can possibly get to the cemetary please do, it's THE memorial to go to, not only is it Randy's 25th, the documentary crew will be there to film the whole thing so anyone there will stand a good chance of being in the film :D .

Thanks very much and let's all help to make this memorial a special one.
Randy has improved everyone's life here in some way...a special, special person indeed, so let's take this opportunity to show Randy our gratitude. :wink:


R.I.P the very special person that is Randy Rhoads. :D

I know cool. I went with white chrysantheums because gardenias(Randy's favorite) would have made the vee cost about $900. Who knows maybe will have enough?
