Save the Date: Jazzin’ on Jackson is March 20, 2014

Mercy Endeavors Senior Center is hosting its 2nd Annual Jazzin’ on Jackson Gala on Thursday, March 20, 2014. This year the event returns to the  historic St. Alphonsus Art and Cultural Center. Last year the event helped Mercy Endeavors raise over $26,000 to build a new senior center.

The Jazzin’ on Jackson theme originated from the seniors citizens at Mercy Endeavors’ appreciation of the jazz music genre as well as the need for a new center on Jackson Avenue to accommodate the growing number of senior citizens in the Irish Channel and Lower Garden District. In 2009, the Jamie Coleman family donated a parcel of land on Jackson Avenue to Mercy Endeavors. Since that time, four blighted buildings have been cleared and development is underway for the new and improved center.

Tickets are $50 in advance and $60 in the door and may be purchased by calling Mercy Endeavors at 504-568-0607 . Tickets can also be purchased online.

The evening will feature live music, food and libations provided by local vendors. Free off-street parking is available at two adjacent lots on St. Andrew Street between Magazine and Constance. Guests are encouraged to dress in jazzy attire from head to toe to celebrate the evening.

For sponsorship or volunteer inquiries, please contact Cherie Moore, Development Director, at 504-568-0607.
