The Pizzazz with Jazz Luncheon raises funds for three very important projects:
Scholarship Fund - Each year two students are selected from the University of Houston and Sam Houston State University to receive scholarships. Two students will receive $2,000 each. One student at the University of Houston will receive the J. Kent Adams Scholarship in the amount of $2,500. One student at Sam Houston State University will receive the Clara Lewis Scholarship in the amount of $2,500. Funds needed: $9,000.
Free Children's Series - Cypress Creek FACE presents four performances each season that are completely free to the public. Because the concerts are free, they are attended by children of all races, ages, and income levels allowing community members the opportunity to experience a live performance, in some case, for the first time. Funds are used for artist fees and production costs for all four performances. Funds needed: $6,000.
Summer Strings Camp Program - Cypress Creek FACE presents two summer strings camps each summer for junior high orchestra students. Funds are used for scholarships that are given to students who are not able to afford to attend and to help pay for teachers, facility rental, and other production costs. Funds needed: $5,000.
Pizzazz with Jazz 2018 will be held at Champions Golf Club on Tuesday, May 15, 2018.
The 2018 Honoree is Mrs. Anne Manning.
