Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation would like to thank The Rolling Stones and BMG for their generous donation and their continued support of the Blues.

This charitable gift will assist Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation with their continued endeavors promoting Blues music, as well as the ongoing preservation of the historic Chess Records building, where much of this music was recorded.

On behalf of Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation, we thank you so very much!
