The 2006 Annual Report was just mailed out, and is also available online.  We hope you enjoy reading the Report and seeing all that your support helps make happen.

Plans are underway for fall Rex Foundation benefits and fundraisers.  Plans include a special Dark Star Orchestra Rex Musical Caravan Tour beginning September 26th, where $1 per ticket will be contributed to the Rex Foundation, and a celebratory Black Tie-Dye Ball will happen along the way.
