Canopy Replacement Fund

HELP! We need to replace the canopy for JSO’s Cathedral Park Jazz Festival ™

img_1635We are continuing our fund-raising drive to replace the 23-tear-old canopy for the stage at Cathedral Park. This will benefit the Jazz Festival as well as others events held in the Cathedral Park neighborhood and St. Johns community.

If you have been to the festival, you have seen the condition of the old canopy: dirty, stained, torn, patched with duct tape, sagging, and filled with many holes. It’s time to replace this weathered old trooper that has served us so well for so many years.

The Jazz Society’s mission is to keep Jazz alive by sponsoring events, giving  scholarships, and supporting performers. So replacing the Cathedral Park canopy is a great way to serve our constituents. We want the Festival to be, and look like, a first-class event in all ways.

Our goal is to raise $14,000. We need your help!
