On Saturday, April 8th Building Bridges Through Music will celebrate the 14th Annual Gospel/Jazz Brunch!
This is our signature annual fundraising event and we're excited our event is being held at a new location, BREAKAWAY, 225 Newbury St., Danvers, MA from 11 AM-3 PM.
It is our hope that you will join other community leaders and businesses, celebrating with us as we resound louder than ever before our song of hope, determination, and promise for future generations.
Building Bridges through Music is a Lynn based non-profit organization whose mission is to bring together diverse neighboring communities for the purpose of increasing cultural awareness and racial harmony by using music, dance and dramatic presentation as a multicultural educational tool.
With this being our 14th Annual Gospel/Jazz Brunch, we're shooting for the stars and hope to make it the most successful to date. The brunch draws over 200 supporters from the North Shore, Greater Boston, and beyond and with the help of sponsors such as you, I know we can do it!
Returning due to popular demand - Live music from Anthony Grant & Friends along with some of our revered music directors and musicians, also performances by BBTMusic's Interfaith Ensemble and students past and present will be featured.
Your tax deductible contribution helps support the work of BBTMusic’s Integrative Arts Programs so all programs are accessible to children and adults of all socioeconomic levels; primarily underserved children and youth considered to be “at risk”.
Tickets are $40 per person and tables of ten are $350. 100% of the proceeds will be used for BBTMusic's education through music programs.
Even during these difficult economic times, Building Bridges is growing and expanding our programs and the number of children, youth and adults who participate in them. Your generosity is appreciated in advance for helping make this event a success.
