Hi - I have spoken to the coordinator and really it is just setting a date (well and selling the tickets [:D]). It is going to be at a Jazz club in Burbank, CA (basically in the LA area - "beautiful downtown Burbank", home of NBC, etc.), thought this would be a great central location for everyone in the LA area and they have done concerts there before. I haven't been there, so I am going to check it out next time I am in the area.

I am going to talk to Julie about the timing, as not sure if it makes sense after the WAT. One date they have suggested is June 2 or 3. Also wasn't sure if it made sense to have it close to the 07 conference (but SanDiego is about 2-21/2hrs away). Anyone have any thoughts on dates, let me know.

Also another item they have told me is there will be a webcast that would be going on during the concert, so that anyone who might want to "see" the concert could. She is going to be sending me details on this.

I'll let everyone know more details as they come.

Funny! Let us know when you'll be in Florida again! That was a lot of fun! Shoot me an email if you've found out anything about paypal and the painting.

Jill, how is the planning going? Did you set a date?

Thank you Jill in California for your willingness to take on this fundraiser. It sounds like it will be relatively easy, so I hope you have fun with it. Please let us know when you decide on a date and what venue you choose, so we can spread the word about our new "Jazz for Peace" fundraiser!

You should connect with Lauren. At Saving Grace there was an amazing jazz violinist (Regina). Who fittingly played Amazing Grace along with the CD. It was beautiful. Wish I were down your way!

Yes. If you have 25 pairs of friends (50 total) the Jazz for Peace organizers will do the rest. For example, if I gathered 50 friends to buy tickets ($25/ticket), I just call Jazz for Peace and tell them we're going to do the concert in the Tampa, FL area and they take it from there. Are you interested? Shoot me an email and I can give you more details.
