The family of Ramón “Chunky” Sanchez have created a Gofundme Account to help pay for his services. We are passing this along, with the family note on the page. So if you wish to donate, go here.
Please note that this is the only such fundraiser approved by the family.
Throughout his life, Chunky fought for civil rights. His music provides an important perspective on the bicultural experience. Chunky’s talent was such that he could take on serious issues with a positive and contagious energy. In addition to his role as a musician, Chunky worked with local youth in roles such as sports coach, youth center director, counselor, and teacher. He has received numerous awards and honors, including a National Endowment for the Arts Heritage Fellowship.
Chunky’s family appreciates our financial support, as well as our thoughts and prayers. We have created this fund to honor his memory!
