George Mraz - Rally for Recovery Fund
This is George Mraz, a world class bassist with decades of exceptional musical work as both a soloist and alongside others such as Stan Getz, Chet Baker, Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Dizzy Gillespie, Joe Henderson and many many more.  

On July 8th George endured seven hours of difficult surgery on his pancreas, and while in hospital he suffered a heart attack, and many critical complications that unfortunately extended his hospital stay.  
As his birthday on September 9th approaches, this situation is a devastating hit to him and his wife, Camilla. 
The doctors expect full recovery, but it will take time.

In 2013, George Mraz formed the George Mraz Trio, with his wife Camilla on piano, alongside the talented percussionist, Anthony Pinciotti, and up until this point, enjoyed performances in festivals throughout Europe and prominent venues in New York City.  George and Camilla now place their musical performances on hold and his wife puts all energy and time into George’s full recovery.

Since many friends, colleagues, and fans have asked how they can help support George we decided to open a go fund me account for those who want to help.  

Since September 9th is George’s birthday, and we need a miracle, we thought to created the MRAZ challenge. 

The MRAZ challenge request is to donate $99 toward his recovery. The amount of $99 dollars is in honor of George’s birthday on 9/9.  And to cheer his spirit, we challenge you to submit a silly still photo of yourself pulling your mouth into a smile that we will post on Facebook. 

Each vital donation made on this site will go directly to George and his family.  

 And of course, any donation amount big or small will help, and every amount is greatly appreciated
