JAZZ FOR JUSTICE!
WHAT: Legal Services of North Florida will host the 15th annual Jazz for Justice Benefit with all proceeds going towards providing civil legal representation to domestic violence victims, the elderly, children and poverty level families in danger of losing their homes on Sunday, March 25, 2012.
WHO: Jazz Musicians from across the Big Bend are coming to make this the best Jazz for Justice ever!
* Randy "Big Daddy" Webster with Michael "Doc" Palecki is our opening act at Jazz for Justice. Big Daddy has played at every Jazz for Justice Event for the past 15 years bringing their Chicago Blues style performances, everyone hits the dance floor when Big Daddy wails.
* The Longineu Parsons Ensemble is next. Longineu is back at Jazz for Justice after an absence of a few years, and you will be blown away by his soulful jazz style and his fine trumpet playing. Get ready to swing the afternoon away when Longineu plays
* And flying in from Tokyo is Jazz Violinist extraordinaire, Mark Russell. If you have never heard Mark lift your soul with his violin, you just don't know what a great musician can do.
Celebrating the 15th anniversary of Jazz for Justice, participants will enjoy a North Florida afternoon filled with great jazz and bidding on unique auction items. This year's silent auction features fantasy trips, a Smooth Jazz Cruise, gift certificates from area restaurants, a diamond bracelet and art jewelry, and fun gift baskets will all be available for the high bidders. Jazz for Justice Artwork is now available to view at Chez Pierre Restaurant in Midtown Tallahassee, Florida.
Jazz for Justice will be the last public benefit to be held at Chez Pierre Restaurant, who has for 35 years supported hundreds of non-profit efforts and in turn has provided much needed services to thousands in our community. Join us as we say thank you to Eric Favier and the Chez Pierre family for creating a place where we can not only support
our community but were we can share the moments of our lives with family and friends.
Patron tickets are available for $100 and include two VIP tickets and a champagne reception from 3 to 4PM. Patrons will also enjoy public recognition and sponsorship of a LSNF client family's admission to Jazz for Justice. Featured at this year's VIP Reception will be the Steffi Tassos Trio. You will delight to the beautiful voice of Steffi Tassos as she shares great jazz standards under the oaks.
For those who wish to continue the fun, stay for the After Glow from 7:30 til 9 p.m. and enjoy the fun music of Tallahassee's own, The Big Kahuna's, made up of members of the legal profession. There will be door prizes, dancing, and a chance for the volunteers to relax.
