Unique Opportunity

Is there anyone out there who is in to Jazz? An organization called "Jazz for Peace" has contacted us and would like to help raise awareness and money for the Preeclampsia Foundation. All I need is a member or two from anywhere in the U.S. to agree to sell 25 pairs of tickets and they do the rest using their sponsorship money. They find and secure the venue, advertise and make arrangements for the musicians. Anyone interested, please contact me as soon as possible. Their offer expires in two weeks. I would do it, if I wasn't already planning an event for May and June. It's really a unique opportunity...and so easy!!!

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.

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!

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!
