(organisers) felt it was appropriate to move our Lennon tribute

to October 2. In addition the event, originally planned as a benefit for a

non-violent world, will now also support the vital efforts of the New

John Lennon’s words, message, and music is even more timely now.

New York City identified and shared a mutual love affair with

John and Yoko Ono, and now more than ever, that

unbreakable bond grows even stronger in this time of healing.”
