Thank you to everyone who purchased a chance(s) to win the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350! We earned $4640, an 18% increase over the previous year, and we sincerely thank Jim Click for providing this FUNdraising “vehicle.” (pun intended) This year, it’s a 2017 Ford Explorer Platinum, seats 7, and is valued over $53,000. In addition, there are two additional prizes: 2nd place ~ 2 round-trip, first-class airline tickets to anywhere in the world*, and 3rd prize ~ $5000 cash! It sweetens the deal!
Jazz Music Education has been life changing for so many children in Southern Arizona. From belonging (team/community), to having an independent voice (skill/improv), to traveling across the country and beyond, middle and high school age students have experienced success and meaningful relationships – with their peers, instructors, guest artists, and YOU — the community. If you have contributed, I’m sure you are beaming with great pride knowing you have helped their dreams become a reality. You know your donations to the Tucson Jazz Music Foundation are being well used because you have had the opportunity to see these students perform in live concerts, video clips and via livestream.
We are creating some FUNdraising events and programs to help us fulfill our mission and vision.
- We need funds in August, December and May for scholarships.
- We need funds throughout the year to sponsor guest artists and master educators.
- We need funds to bring jazz music history presentations into the schools.
