Everything Changes, 2013

with one comment

Chris Maupin and the Board/Staff of the Rocky Mountain Cancer Assistance are putting together another round of Everything Changes for this summer.  The brief version of Everything Changes is this:  good friend Lance Jungmeyer wrote and recorded the song Everything Changes after Sarah died, also as a way to deal with the recent loss of his father-in-law.   We played it at the funeral services.  Chris Maupin had a few ideas about the song.  The one that eventually took hold was turning into a musical charity event, with each band playing their version of the song as part of their set.    (For a longer version, here’s my post at the time.)

The third version of Everything Changes is set for July 26, 2013, at 7 p.m. at Casselman’s in Denver.  Rachel and The Kings, Mega Gem, Chemistry Club, and others are the featured entertainment.  You can see full details at the RMCA website here.    Tickets are available now.   Kim & I are going out for it, not sure if full family will accompany or just the two of us.  We look forward to the trip and seeing good friends, good bands, and hopefully you.

On a side note, Go Tigers,  and screw ku.

Kudos to Chris Maupin and all who helped.  Everything Changes raised over $14,000 for the Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers Foundation (a few items are outstanding, so final totals not quite ready).  Any interested can still make donations here.  Downloads from the event (music + pictures) will be available for a donation at a later date.

Some youtube videos of varying quality are available as follows:

Everything Changes update

without comments

One final update from me on Everything Changes, June 5, at The Soiled Dove in Denver.

You can purchase tickets for the event here.  If going, please buy your tickets soon before the event sells out.

The online auction is now available here.  There are currently 30 items available, including a couple of Sarah’s prints, some autographed Denver sports memorabilia, a Lionel Train set, Broncos tickets, a ski trip, an African Safari, and more.  Bids will be accepted online until the event starts and will continue to be accepted at the event that evening.  I think there are still a few items to be added, so check back (and bid!) often.

If you can’t attend, don’t find something you’d like to buy, or have done both but are still fighting the recession, donations to the event can be accepted here.

Everything Changes facebook page is here.

All proceeds benefit the Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers Foundation.

Everything Changes Update

without comments

First, a reminder of the substance — A charity concert to benefit Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers Foundation.  Held Friday, June 5, 2009, at The Soiled Dove in Denver, Colorado.

We’re trying to finalize hotel details, but need a decent guess on the number of people/rooms needed.  If you know you’re traveling and know how many nights you’ll be staying, I’d appreciate a quick email so we can finalize those details as best as possible.  Tentative plans include some variety of shuttle service between the hotel and the venue.

The event will feature live music from local Denver musicians… An all star group of locals will open the show.  The Hazel Miller Band will be the feature act.  Both bands plan on performing Lance’s song, Everything Changes.

We’ll have a photo contest going on via slideshow, themed Everything Changes.  Winners will receive prizes to be announced.  Entries can be emailed to everythingchanges@becking.com.  Unless specified, low res versions of these entries will be available for download purchase after the show.

We’ll have lots of items available via silent auction.  These items will likely be available online first, so all are welcome to participate.

We’ll have a potter throwing some stuff during the night.  Selected pieces of her work will also be available during the show, proceeds again benefitting the RMCCF.

In addition to the online auction, some of the music and many of the photographs will be available for purchase online after the show.  Again, proceeds donating the RMCCF.  Tickets to the show will be $40, and will also be available online beforehand.

Finally, because of the cost of the venue, the band, etc., we are seeking sponsors.  In the $500-1000 range purely to help offset costs, so there are more proceeds for donation.  If you’d like more information or know a company or person who might be interested, please let me know.

Everything Changes.  Honor Sarah, fight cancer, have fun.

“Everything Changes” Finalized

The date for Everything Changes is set for June 5, 2009, at The Soiled Dove in Denver, Co.  More info on the event posted here previously, but in short, Honor Sarah, Fight Cancer, Have Fun.  Proceeds from the event will benefit the Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers Foundation.

The title comes from Lance Jungmeyer’s song, which he’s just put on youtube.

Everything Changes – written and performed by Lance Jungmeyer

More details posted as they come, or the facebook group is staying current.

Everything Changes information

with one comment

Prior to Sarah’s party, Lance Jungmeyer, a good friend of ours, told me he’d written and recorded a song, then handed me a CD.  On it were two versions of a song titled “Everything Changes”, which we then immediately decided to play during the service.  Lance dedicated it to “Sarah Becking, and others who I lost in 2008 — Randy Johnson, Carlos DeLeon and Bob Schneeberg.”

Another good friend of ours, Chris Maupin, told me later he had thought and wished for a way to hook up with Lance beforehand and do something similar, but was unable due to travel (he lives in Denver, Lance in KC, both trying to get to Columbia on short notice), and had never even brought it up.  With that in mind, he was very glad when he learned Lance had done it on his own.

A few weeks later then, as Hold That Hug started coming to be fully-formed, Chris thought more.  What started as an idea of playing with Lance’s song more, maybe finding some professional musicians to fill in the score a little, whatever, has now turned into a separate event.

Everything Changes, with some details still tentative, is scheduled for Denver, Colorado, in June 2009.  Either Friday, June 5, or Saturday, June 20, at The Soiled Dove.  In Chris’ words, “Honor Sarah, Fight Cancer, Have Fun”.  The event will combine live music and photography with good friends and fun, with proceeds benefiting the Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers Foundation – “providing support and care to Colorado cancer patients with dignity”.  The Hazel Miller Band will headline the show.  Chris and other Denver musicians will open.

There will be a photo contest, also featuring the theme Everything Changes.  With any luck at all someone we know has connections with a photo lab and Kodak or someone, and we’ll have prize packages for the winners.

For any and all, we’ll have audio downloads of original songs available online later.   There will be a silent auction featuring Colorado stuff and other valuable goods as we come upon them.

In all, the makings of a very nice event, with some details almost certain to change, for a good cause, honoring Sarah and all others who’ve dealt with it, in another place that she considered home (Sarah’s family moved from Denver to Columbia her junior year of high school).  Chris has done the vast majority of the work thus far.  Lance has graciously allowed his song to be in the mix and is helping with a facebook group among other things, for those of you who are 16 or who are pretending to be (pot/kettle).

Hope all is well for you and yours… continue to hug your friends and family, continues to be my sole bit of useful advice.  And on a side note, screw ku.
