Hello to the friends of The Jazz Sanctuary,
Experience the Art of Jazz
You’ll notice two changes to our website and handouts. First we have a new identification to go along with The Jazz Sanctuary: Experience the Art of Jazz. After all it is art isn’t it? I have no idea where the ideas come from or where the soloist gets the flash of brilliance, but it is there. Witness the wonderful playing of Larry McKenna who led us at last month’s event at Trinity Church Buckingham or Lynne Reilly’s playing at First United Methodist Church. It was the Art of Jazz experience that was absolutely wonderful. Let’s not forget Eddie, Leon, Randy and George all of whom give us their artistry nightly. And the second announcement? We have a new address: 2200 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy (#S 1006)! Speaking of art, the view from my new digs is the Philadelphia Art Museum.
Let’s not forget the Jazz Sanctuary in November. We still have window clings for a donation of $3.00 (one cling) and $5.00 (two clings). Postage paid envelopes are on your tables, please make a contribution and let’s keep The Jazz Sanctuary alive and well providing events for houses of worship as well as charitable organizations. Witness the November/December events (see previous page) where we provide events for many diverse entities as well as Bucket Drumming (not shown) for the second time. Thank you Leon for your wonderful classes.

Our fund raising was, is and will continue to be a GREAT SUCCESS!
Statistics tell the tale:
Please see our Donor List page and see for yourself what a brilliant job you have done!
Are we finished? Done? No more contributions? I hope not! In the following days and weeks I expect more checks to come in so that we can continue and expand our mission.
There is simply no way of my saying thank you, except to say thank you and play music for you with the greatest group of talented musicians that make up The Jazz Sanctuary – my thanks to them too (of course).
Thank you and thank you again for all your help.
What’s holding us back from holding even more events? Funding, it’s really that simple. If you know of a potential sponsor, please let me know and of course your contributions are so important to us – representing 42% of our funding. I know that your contribution will be mailed to us and we can include your name in our list of donors.
Meanwhile, back at the home base The Jazz Sanctuary is receiving contributions on almost a daily basis, for sure on a weekly basis. THANK YOU AND THANK YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN.
My hope and wish is that you take advantage of the events and visit with us in 2017 which promises to be a wonderful year filled with music!
By the end of September we will have appeared at 384 events since inception.
Attendance for the year to date (09/30/17) 2,162
There is no complaining about those totals, is there!
That wonderful accomplishment has only been reached with the help of our sponsors, your contributions and of course you our wonderful audience!
Thanks and more thanks for all your help!

I find it incumbent of me to make a plea for a donation. We simply cannot exist if our program is not supported. Some 40% of our funding comes from you, our wonderful audience. We are making our plans for a brilliant 2017 and I make this request so that we can fund the remainder of events scheduled for 2017.
If you haven’t signed up for the once monthly email, please do!
Thank you seems inadequate nonetheless “thanks to each and every person who made a contribution thus far.
Listen to some music, celebrate life and visit with us at a Jazz & Joe event
Don’t forget to use our sponsors – without them (and you of course!) we wouldn’t be swinging along.
I look forward to hearing from you (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org).
