Commemorate Johnny Lytle

Springfield, Ohio is set to commemorate hometown vibraphonist Johnny Lytle with a statue in the town's walk of fame. People interested in raising the $90 to $100K can make tax deductible donations to the Springfield Foundation here. Just target your donation to the Johnny Lytle statue in the donation / check out process.
