November 7, 2012
For six years I have been coordinating a jazz concert/festival in honor of my late father, Chicago jazz legend Franz Jackson, in Southwestern Michigan (Dowagiac). I had hit a plateau in terms of moving the event forward in growth because I have not yet become a non-profit organization and, therefore, couldn't solicit sponsorship funds for the event. Enter Charity Music, Inc. Our missions are in complete sync and Charity Music almost immediately granted my request to handle the fiscal oversight of the Franz Jackson Jazz Celebration. With the help of Charity Music, I was able to secure several sponsors in a relatively short period of time for this year's event and that enabled me to offer more performances to our audience. Roger has been nothing but attentive and excited about my efforts and working with me to further both of our visions. I am so anxious to start working with Charity Music on the 2013 Jazz Celebration which I hope will not only bring world-class music to people of all ages in Southwestern Michigan at an affordable price, but will also offer exposure to the great work that Charity Music does independently. I am honored and excited to have this collaboration with Charity Music and I look forward to many years of mutually beneficial partnership.
