07 Oct Annual Dueling Pianos Event
Our hearts are filled with so much gratitude and love for our extended Jambos family who helped us deliver on a magical evening at our Annual Dueling Pianos Event. We loved seeing so many smiling faces – nearly 200 community members came to show support for our mission to bring comfort to kids in Foster Care with a brand-new pair of pajamas.
It was also an impactful evening for our organization and the children we serve. Thanks to your contributions to our silent auction and raffle, as well as our sponsors for the event, we raised $19,516 that will directly impact the lives of children in foster care. Seriously, thank you!!
We also launched our Monthly Donor Program. This brand-new opportunity will help us be financially sustainable while we continue to expand our footprint. For just $50 each month, Jambos can impact the lives of 42 children. So, it’s a no-brainer to join the Jambos family of monthly donors. When you sign up, you also get some cool perks, including VIP access to events and exclusive updates on projects important to you, as our way of saying thank you. You can learn more about the Monthly Donor Program and sign up – if you haven’t already – here. Monthly donors are an integral part of Jambos’ toolbox to help the more than 400,000 kids that are in Foster Care at any point of time in the United States. We’re already in 35 states – help us reach children in the other 15 when you join our Monthly Donor Program.
If you know anything about Jambos, then you know that prayer is another of the powerful tools we use to achieve our mission. We pray before any large decision, and we always pray before we kick off big events. Needless to say, beginning this annual event with prayer over our donors, our families, and how the night could change the lives of future families was a true highlight.
Plus, we had a lot of fun, too! From Dueling Pianos to dancing the night away with the awesome tunes and energy of our DJ, our Jambos family came to enjoy one another’s company. The dinner was delicious and everyone enjoyed the amazing appetizers as well! We believe pictures are worth a thousand words, so we always provide an opportunity to capture memories at our events. The photo booth was a hit!
Our event sponsors included so many businesses in our local community who understand how important our work is and want to help us do more of it. This year’s generous sponsors included: Engel & Volkers, New American Funding, LCS Pressure Washing, Keller Williams Realty Atlanta Partners, McMichael & Gray PC, Silk Exteriors, Georgia Select Roofing, Allstate – Main Street Agency, Metzger Platinum Insurance, Cork It, Poe’s Heating & Air, Peach State Realty, Mary Kay, Affordable Health Insurance Club USA, U Got Mail, Syfan Logistics, and LDG Accounting Services. We are truly grateful for your support.
Our Dueling Pianos was a night to remember, and its results will help power our work in the months to come. If you missed this event, don’t worry, we invite you to join us for our next Jambos family event Llamas & Pajamas on November 6 from 1-3PM at the Buford Corn Maze. Tickets are $14 and you get to wear your PJs!
