Preparations are underway for the 2020 Northwest Jazz Festival, which will take place Friday and Saturday, Aug. 28 and 29, in the Village of Lewiston. To that end, the board of directors and Jazz Festival staff will hold a fundraiser, “A Taste of Jazz,” from 4-8 p.m. Sunday, April 19, at the Brickyard Brewing Company 436 Center St., Lewiston.
Businesses are encouraged to help support the fundraiser by donating items for the basket and silent auction. The board seeks to raise more than $10,000 at this event to assist in offsetting costs of producing the free two-day outdoor music festival, now in its 19th year.
The fundraiser will feature jazz music from local musicians donating their time to help raise funds, as well as food donated by local restaurants. A 50/50 split, cash bar, basket and silent auction will round out the evening.
Tickets for the fundraising event are $20 presale or $25 at the door and can be purchased at the Niagara River Region Chamber of Commerce (895 Center St., Lewiston), by calling 716-754-9500, or online at www.eventbrite.com.
Sponsorship opportunities also are available for the 2020 Northwest Jazz Festival.
Headliners and musicians will be announced in early spring. For more information, visit www.LewistonJazz.com.
