It was not just a time for raising funds. It was also a time for raising spirits, making friends, and swinging together.
Jazz in the Park for Charity was held on Sunday, June 25, on the grounds of Governors State University in University Park under sometimes sunny, sometimes cloudy skies, but always under the smiling faces of the 1,000 attendees and many volunteer workers.
The event was a great accomplishment. Fifteen south suburban non-profit service, cultural, and educational organizations contributed to the success of the event and raised funds to support their work.
