Dear Louis, We at the SIMS Foundation would like to congratulate The Austin Chronicle for 25 years of journalistic accomplishment. The dedicated staff at the Chronicle has served the Austin community with distinction and integrity over the years, particularly its ever-changing music community, and for that we are grateful. We would also like to thank you for your ongoing support of the work SIMS does. SIMS has been serving the Austin community by providing low-cost mental-health services to musicians since its inception upon the tragic death of Sims Ellison in 1995. From day one, the Chronicle has been there, for every SIMS benefit, large and small, and for every moment in the music community's various times of need. We are very grateful for everything you have done. Happy 25th anniversary, Austin Chronicle.
Sincerely, Ray Benson Chair, SIMS board of directors, and the SIMS board of directors and staff
