Hello Getaway Family!
We are just two days away from the start of NVJG '14! While enjoying the amazing adventures that await you in Napa, there will be an opportunity to give back to a great cause: music education.
Last year we raised over $65,000 at our annual wine reception and silent auction to benefit The GRAMMY® Foundation. We hope to raise even more money this year through your generous contributions.
The event will be held at the Lincoln Theater on Friday, June 13th from 5:30-7:00pm prior to the "Friday Night Funk Night" concert and will feature a performance by the Vintage High Jazz Combo from Vintage High School, Napa CA plus complimentary wine tastings from some of the best wineries in Napa Valley.
Here's a sneak peek at some of the items up for bid:
* Roland Keytar played and signed by BC *
* Earl Klugh’s Weekend of Jazz at Kiawah Island VIP Package for 2 *
* Kirk Whalum & Ernie Watts signed tenor saxophone *
* Various autographed artwork and vintage vinyl by several artists *
* Napa Valley Wine Basket with various signed bottles *
* “XII” Drumhead signed by BC and Chris Miskel *
* Various Winery Private Tastings and Tour Experiences *
* Handwritten "Dreams" Sheet Music by BC *
...and much more!
Brian is very proud to be associated with this wonderful cause and has dedicated countless hours to help create awareness and raise funds for music education throughout the country. As more and more school districts cut funding for the arts, it is up to us to keep music and the arts alive.
We're also excited to have two live auction items that will be auctioned off by Brian to benefit the GRAMMY Foundation during the show on Saturday night:
* 57th GRAMMY Awards Platinum Ticket Package with Rehearsal Access *
*Autographed Gibson 335 Guitar by ALL NVJG 2014 artists *
