THIRD ANNUAL JAZZ LUNCHEON JUNE 2,2019
We have made great progress over the last two years since inception and want to continue our efforts. Our goal is to build senior playgrounds and green space and to provide programs that promote wellness and interaction. After raising over $100,000 at our 2017 and 2018 fundraising luncheons, we are blessed with our first senior playground at St. Dominic’s Village in the Medical Center and “art and exercise” programs at The Health Museum in the Museum District. For 2019, we need your additional outreach to achieve these goals below:
· The first project is to develop exercise and volunteer service programs for the only Texas senior playground located at Carbide Park in La Marque. We formed a partnership with Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service and Galveston County Parks and Recreation.
· The second project is to build a senior playground and art/meditation garden at one of the first senior parks in the U.S. that promotes health, education, and socialization. We partnered with Wm Dillard & Associates LP to donate 2.6 acres of land in the City of Jersey Village and to conduct a feasibility study based on land uniqueness. This effort will be geared toward a future donation to the city of Jersey Village.
We sincerely appreciate your support and consideration for this cause. Our primary fundraising activity is our Jazz Luncheon and it is exciting! We are chairing the Great Age Movement Jazz Luncheon, at the St Regis Hotel on June 2, 2019 from 11:30-3 p.m. Special honorees this year will be National Senior Olympic gold medal recipient, DeEtte Sauer. Multi-award winner and PBS Host, Ernie Manouse, will serve as the Master of Ceremonies. Angela Nichols will be performing along with a special production put on by the Chinese Community Center Senior Tai Chi Troupe. We anticipate 250-350 guests and expect to attract significant attention from the general public and media.
