Jazz with Friends on Thursday, December 4th

Updates: We raised $1,231.66!

Thursday night’s Jazz With Friends Concert, featuring the jazz ensembles from Campolindo High School, Dublin High School, and Dougherty Valley High School, raised spirits, laughter, cross-community solidarity in music, awareness about the experiences of living every day with Type I diabetes, and funds for research to help eliminate the disease.

Here is what Mr. O’Scanlon of JDRF had to say the morning after the event:
“Thank you so much for inviting me along, and for supporting JDRF. It really was a wonderful evening. The music was fantastic, and the stories between songs really added a special touch. Kudo’s all around! We have $1,231.66! That’s so amazing! We’re so thankful for your support! I would love to write a blog post for our local site and Facebook page. Thanks again. Please let me know if there is ever anything that myself or JDRF can do to support your efforts.”

Here’s a link to Mr. O’Scanlon’s blog entry about the event: Music for a Cure.
