Great Jazz, Good Cause
Please join us as we welcome Evan Christopher (www.clarinetroad.net) and Shannon Powell (www.thekingoftreme.com) to Washington, DC. They are stunning musicians who celebrate the traditions and explore the infinite musical possibilities of New Orleans jazz.
Sunday, October 6, 4:00 1500 Harvard Street, NW, Washington, DC
The concert will be followed by a reception to meet the artists and learn about the Lower 9th Ward Homeownership Association.
$35.00 in advance; $40.00 at door. Tax-deductible above $20.00
75% of Lower 9th Ward residents, many of them homeowners, have been unable to return since Hurricane Katrina. Louisiana has just released the last funds that will be available to help them get home – if they get the grants they’re entitled to. Your entire ticket price and additional donation will go directly to hiring advocates for them, allowing us to access millions of dollars to rebuild their houses and finally bring them home.
Please consider sponsoring.
The costs of this concert have been generously underwritten by the All Souls Church Beckner Fund and Social Justice Ministries. Every dollar you give will go straight to the Lower 9th Ward. Please contribute at the highest sponsorship level you can. In return, we would like you to accept an offer of our appreciation, as outlined above.
