We helped to raise over $2,500 for needy Kitsap families!

Many surprises at our pre-holiday fundraiser show on Nov. 16 at Abundant Life Foursquare Church in Bremerton. First off, from the performers perspective, the crowd was amazing. There was lots of energy and support right from the downbeat.  I cannot express enough how important that is when one is improvising and taking risks live on the stage. Thank you! Plus, according to Ken Templeton of ALFC, the concert raised close to $2500 for Santa’s Cause;  A nonprofit group dedicated to helping families during the holiday season. We are so happy we can give back to our own community in ways that will truly brighten many people’s lives this Christmas season!

Another big surprise was our painter Sharon Wilfong. Although Sharon is not new to the performance art painting, this was Sharon’s first appearance with Jazz Canvas. She was truly capable and up to the task! We all had a lot of fun interacting with this very talented woman! I personally heard many positive comments about her work. Thank you Sharon!  Now can you please come over and scrape the paint drops off my drumset? Thank you everyone! It was a truly moving evening of art, music, and community.  - Terry
