John Bilezikjian

Dear Friends,

Now in existence for only 3 years, The John Bilezikjian Foundation continues to strive to expand its programs and offerings to the community. We hope that you will be able to take part in one or more of the many projects that we are offering this year and experience firsthand the pride we take in supporting our cause.

We have enclosed a brochure with our Mission Statement and our Goals. In order to meet our mission and support our Vision we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of friends and individuals like you, we wouldn’t have been able to fund the “The Magic of John Bilezikjian” Concert at the La Mirada Performing Arts Theater our first year.

We ask that you make a commitment to support our annual appeal by making a cash donation. This year our goal is $ 20,000, and we hope to meet that commitment. Your generosity will make a difference in our community by allowing us to continue in our work. If you would like to have a fund-raising Tea, Brunch, or Party to help us raise money for the foundation, please contact us.

Information about how to donate is contained in the brochure.
Thank You,

Sincerely and with gratitude,

Helen Bilezikjian

President

John BilezikjianAs you know, John has been diagnosed with kidney failure. For three years he has been playing and performing with a hemosplit catheter in his upper chest. Because of it’s proximity to his main artery, heart, and lung it exposes these vital organs to possible infection. Because John is not considered a candidate for a kidney transplant, the pressure to place a fistula in his arm is increasing. His doctor is insisting on it happening this year. As a musician, you can understand how difficult this could make it for him to play.

Several good friends joined together to start a foundation in his name—John Bilezikjian Foundation. This is their way of giving back to John for his contributions as a virtuoso musician, faithful friend, and mentor to those who come to him for the invaluable education only he can give. It will allow him to continue writing and performing whenever he can. Also, his legacy for the future will be his music, written and recorded. His only request of the foundation is to allow him to do a concert and have it recorded—”The Magic of John Bilezikjian”. The John Bilezikjian foundation created this annual fund raising event, a benefit concert, for John to do just that.

So please, donate. You may call me directly at 949-581-5694 to request a packet of information.

Thank you for your generosity and understanding.
