More Info

We made the above video to help Dwayne set up a kickstarter to raise money for a record.  We never launched that effort but we will.  Right now though, his wife Wendy needs our help to get through the next few months, settling his affairs and taking care of their 7 year old son.  

Wendy has been Dwayne's solid support for the last 10 years, and for the past two years she has helped to run the afterschool program at her son's school  Wendy is always doing for others, and now it's time for us to do for her.  Please help us cushion her landing.  

All funds will go directly to Wendy to help with funeral expenses, moving expenses, and help her to land on her feet for her son.  While she did not set up this campaign, we have linked it directly to her account and she is the only person who will have access to the funds.

Wendy and Quinn are very thankful

I just wanted to let everyone know that Wendy and Quinn are overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of support. They are both doing well. They are working on setting up a memorial service at some point in the future. Wendy is also making arrangements with the Jazz Foundation to arrange the ability to accept tax deductible donations through the organization for those who are interested. The memo of checks should say Dwayne Burno.
