The Rotary Club of Edmonds Daybreakers is passionate about service and our community, and we need your help. Today, like many other public and private institutions, our schools are facing alarming budget shortfalls and are having to make challenging decisions that threaten the certainty of music education.
While we can debate the individual budget line items, there is one thing we know for certain – music education provides many benefits to our kids and our community. Kids who play in a band or sing in a choir have higher grades, are less likely to dropout and are far less likely to be involved in drugs, crime or other destructive behaviors.
The Edmonds Daybreakers are continuing a 117 year Rotarian tradition of service by dedicating ourselves to the 2012 Edmonds Jazz Connection – a community festival that will bring together 20 outstanding student big bands, combos and vocal ensembles on Saturday, May 28th in Downtown Edmonds. This event will showcase a year of hard work by each of these groups in an ‘encore’ end of year performance for families, friends and their community.
Each year, we ask for the community’s support to become a Patron of this wonderful festival - your $100 contribution will ensure the future of this festival through helping cover modest expenses, while raising funds for music scholarships for college bound students and grants to support our school music programs.
Please consider supporting the Edmonds Jazz Connection through a donation, becoming a Patron, or attending the festival on Saturday, May 26th – the kids, the Daybreakers and our community will sincerely appreciate your support!
