“A percentage [of the proceeds raised by the campaign] will be donated by us to the Jazz Foundation of America which provides performance opportunities to emergency living expenses to medical care to housing,” says Rubin. “The Jazz Foundation offers a variety of programs and assistance for jazz and blues musicians in need. For this 10-year celebration, we hope to have an education program, young musicians showcase, and multi-media as part of some jazz performances.”
