What else can be said? The night was a success in every way imaginable.
From the auctions to the t-shirt and cd sales, to the HUGE
crowd and all the bands that played their a**es off, it was truly a night
to remember. Thanks go out to the following people, without whom all of this
would have been impossible:
Matt & Gretchen Dudek, Bree Freeman, Kathy
& Mona and the staff @ Nick's Fat City, George Pazin, John & Donna
Goberish, Scott Kellar, Jason & Monica Bush, Grace Kane, Michelle Rudek,
Kim Zimmerman, Dan Tihey, Todd Heeter, Rick Witkowski, Jordan Cline @ Speiro
Records, Michael Nolan, Michael Ehman, John Moschitta & Vinnie Ferguson
@ Clear Channel, Lenny Diana, Pat Lucas @ Ticketmaster, Joelle Demont, Tracy
Eury, Marie Rembert, Matt Rust, Bill Warnick, Brian & Judy Moore, Larry
Rippel, Maureen Ciarolla, Ron Volpe, Griff Humphries,

bands who gave their time and played with immense energy and enthusiasm,
The Rust and Ciarolla families, and finally, Rich Rust, whose music and life
an inspiration to us all. We'll miss you, but we'll never forget you.

was a fitting
to Rich and his
music. We all love you.
