UPDATE: We are now raising funds for a large mural at Pasadena High School in honor of Ed and Alex Van Halen. We also plan to donate to the Pasadena High School Music Program in Ed's memory. The Van Halen Brothers attended Pasadena High and we would like to get equipment into the hands of students there, and possibly build a state of the art recording studio as well. If you're a Van Halen Fan and would like to keep this party going, please consider donating to this great cause. Music is the universal language and involvement in musical programs is often the hook that keeps at risk students in school. Let's do this!
Please help by contributing to this Go Fund Me account, so that we can collect the funds required by the city to submit an application for the renaming of a public space in Old Town. That fee is $3,000 which the city uses for staffing and material costs.
If you are a Pasadena resident, please help our campaign for a public space for Eddie and his bandmates, by emailing the Pasadena City Council and letting them know that you support this effort. Please be sure to include your street address in your email to your council member. It’s our understanding that this request may go before the Pasadena City Council as early as October 26th, so please send your email soon!
If you live outside of Pasadena, please continue to help, we welcome your support! Thank you! We hope that one day we can all gather together in a place where we can honor the genius of Eddie Van Halen and the outstanding accomplishments of his band. And how wonderful would it be to support Eddie and Alex's alma mater with instruments and a music lab? Van Halen Fans are AWESOME and together we can make this happen!
