FUNDRAISING EVENTS

THE ANNUAL GALA

Thank you for Reveling for a Cause at Jazz St. Louis’ Gala!

We had a great time celebrating Jazz St. Louis at our annual gala! Each year our gala raises funds solely to support education and engagement activities for youth in our community. Your support helps further our education programs and actively preserve the future of jazz in our community. Jazz St. Louis has entertained, trained and educated more than 170,000 students since the year 2000. Through our education programs, students gain access to training from some of the world’s most influential jazz artists. Each education program is uniquely developed to enhance creativity, empower self-confidence and advance leadership skills in young people. We proudly transform youth throughout the metropolitan area and help form life-long bonds that in turn bridge cultural gaps and strengthen the future of jazz in greater St. Louis.

Please check back here for more information about our next gala. Contact Bree Melton, Development Associate, Events & Corporate Engagement, at 314-881-3097 or [email protected] with any questions.
