Karaoke Memorial for Shawn Wilson (Charity Benefit)

***Just so that everyone knows, this will also be a benefit event.  We will be collecting, from those who would like to give, and donating to an organization in support of Aspergers, in Memory of Shawn.***

Shawn Wilson, a member of the Karaoke Klub, loved to sing and he was really good at it. He was a friendly, funny, and all around great guy. Unfortunately, tragedy struck, and we lost him Sunday, July 1st. Dan Cowan and I would like to get together, remember Shawn, and do one of the things he enjoyed, please join us.

I thought the Royal Kubo in Clawson would be a perfect spot. They have plenty of room, the Filipino food (think Chinese and Mexican) is awesome. The karaoke is set up all the time, there is no start time, you sing when you want to, and in the middle of the week, we should pretty much have the place to ourselves.

We will miss Shawn always, but he will never be forgotten.

    I think it was important for all of us to get together and celebrate the wonderful man that Shawn was. I enjoyed meeting everyone and thought it was good for all of us to get together.

    What a night. We all had such a great time raising money for The SHAWN Movement (for Asperger's Syndrome awareness) and sharing in one of his favorite pastime, and keeping Shawn's positive, uplifting spirit alive.

    By the way, to learn more about Shawn, become a friend of his memorial Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/lovingmemory.shawnwilson) and learn how to donate money, goods and services to the SHAWN Movement (http://www.calvaryhouseusa.org).

    It's a trust fund, set up through Calvary House. Money collected will go towards research and support for people with autism and Asperger's Syndrome.

    What's the name of the Asperger's organization that you are donating to? Is it local or national?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
