2022 "Give the Band a Hand" Gala
CJF's 2022 “Give the Band a Hand” Gala at the Omni Hotel was an outstanding success and we are so appreciative of the financial support and enthusiastic comments we have received. Saluting Don Was and paying tribute to Jeff Clayton was indeed our honor. Our host, Alonzo Bodden, along with our musicians - Marcus Miller, Ronnie Foster, Clayton Cameron, Dean Parks, Rickey Woodard, Charles Owens, Adam Ledbetter, Don Littleton, Edwin Livingston, Dr. James Ford – and the talented members of the Fernando Pullum Quintet -- entertained us with a concert to remember!
Generous auction donors, including Michael Lazaroff and the Jazz Cruises, Lee Ritenour, Miles Davis Properties, LLC, Zildjian Cymbals, Ludwig Drums, Haas Entertainment and many others, helped to generate the much-needed funds to continue our assistance to many more musicians in need.
