JAMBOREE: Dec. 18th, Holiday Jamboree
Holiday Jamboree (for Grownups)
A music and dance extravaganza to benefit the NY Cares Winter Wishes program. Organized by singer/songwriter Jennifer Logue, musician Domenique Profir, and artist Inessa Kovaleva, the evening will feature some of New York’s hottest musical acts, dance troupes, and local businesses, all to benefit New York Cares’ year-round children’s programs and the Winter Wishes Program running through mid-December.
As kids, we had school holiday concerts. The band would play, the choir would sing, and parents, teachers, and extended family would be brought together for an excruciating two hours of off- key carols and squeaky clarinets. The music was lacking but the sense of community and togetherness was strong. With the Holiday Jamboree (for Grownups), NYC is about to embark on a sleigh full of holiday cheer and goodwill.
From 8-10p, the evening will feature some of NYC’s hottest musical acts including the Wellington Papers, the Shake, the Young Things, Seku Grey, and Jennifer Logue. In addition, Rhythmic Dance Group’s Alyona Vladova and Jonathan Cabrera will heat up the dance floor with their signature salsa moves followed by David Campos and Liz Zaita from Dança Comigo NYC performing African Zouk Tango. will also be a number of raffles featuring some of NYC’s best restaurants, designers, dance schools, and other local businesses to help the fundraising effort.
