Our Charity of the Month for June is the Litchfield Jazz Camp Scholarship Program!
Founded in 1997, Litchfield Jazz Camp now serves 70-150 residential and day students each week for 1 to 4 week sessions on the campus of The Gunnery, an independent boarding and day school in Washington, Connecticut. Run by Litchfield Performing Arts, a charitable organization dedicated to changing lives through music, the Camp's philosophy is simple. They start with a faculty of amazing and inspiring jazz musicians. To that we add eager music students in a non-competitive program. Litchfield Jazz Camp embraces all learners - students 12 years to adult, beginners, intermediate and advanced players, students with learning disabilities, and others. That is how the collaborative, supportive and fun atmosphere at Litchfield Jazz Camp is created.
Each year, almost $100,000 is awarded in scholarships to kids from throughout the state who face an economic barrier to attending this great program. This year, those scholarships are in jeopardy, as State budget cuts have drastically reduced the funding. Help us to support this great mission!
Make a reservation for Sunday through Saturday (Friday and Saturday for lunch only) and we will donate 10% of your check to this cause. You win. The charity wins.
