Big hugs and wet cheek-kisses to Mike Ryan, owner of Tree Tavern Pizza.  Once again, Mike has jumped on board to support YouChoose Music and CUMAC (pronounced Koo-Mack) in the fight against hunger in New Jersey.  Tree Tavern is putting a special challenge out there:  Every time you buy 3 Tree Tavern Pizzas, $5 will go to CUMAC.  

Just save your receipts and show them to YouChoose Music Chief Organizer Guy Dave Philp at any of the upcoming events or email him: Dave@YouChooseMusic.FM.

Rather than write a whole big thang, I thought it'd be nice to share with you what I wrote to your YouChoose Band.  Maybe you'll learn something from our experiences over the past 3 years putting on charity shows.  Lots of ups and downs, but CUMAC Beatles Night was our most significant "up" (since our very first show).  Let us know your thoughts.
