My name is Tim, I have been a Santa Cruz resident since 1980 and father of 3. My eldest son Ryan, who passed away last year, was legally blind (Optic Atrophy), had Asperger’s and seizures. After graduating from Santa Cruz high school, Ryan attended the California School for the Blind in Fremont for 3 1/2 years.
I don’t know if you would consider putting my name in the hat for the concert tickets, as I am not visually impaired, but this is what I would like to propose and why.
After Ryan’s passing in February 2013 just before his 29th birthday, my wife and I have decided that in reflecting on Ryan’s short life, that we think that his happiest years were at CSB.
Here’s my proposal: IF – if you were to put my name in for the drawing for a pair of tickets, and …
If – I were to win a pair of tickets, what I would do is this. I would contact our friends, which we still have many, at CSB and tell them that 2 of the kids from CSB get the tickets and I would be their chauffeur to and from the concert, their snacks and beverages are on me, in honor of my son. I’ve actually done this before when I happened to win 2 tickets to an Evanescence concert on a call in radio show, and I took Ryan (who was attending CSB at the time) and one of his friends from CSB, and they had a really great time.
After Ryan passed, we sent out a few notices on social media to let people know of Ryan’s passing and that we were having a Celebration of his Life in a few days. We received a huge packet of cards and loving letters from both staff and students at CSB who were friends and teachers of his. It touched my heart and helped soothe my soul a little knowing that so many people loved him, as we all did.
So, I try to do all that I can to help CSB, as like I said, you won’t find a more loving, nurturing environment than there.
I just wanted to throw the idea out there in case you would consider it, as the kids there are very, very musically talented and I would love to find a way to thank them for their kindness for what they sent to us at my lowest point of my life.
Many thanks for all of the wonderful services that you provide to our community.
Lighthouse have given me many wonderful opportunities as a client and a camper(70s). I also felt very fortunate to give back to the Lighthouse as a volunteer (fundraiser for Cycle for Sight, Personal Service Worker, in the store, etc.). It would be a wonderful experience to be given the opportunity to see Paul McCartney in such a memorable concert.
