Hands for Hope will host its ninth annual Starlight Jazz Serenade on February 6, 2009 at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The event raises funds to support all our single-parent support programs. I hope you will consider attending the concert, both to support this worthy local cause and to enjoy the incredible music offered every year at this singular event. Leading jazz artists and award-winning musicians, such as Peter White, Norman Brown, Everett Harp and Boney James have performed at previous concerts and La Rita Shelby, entertainer and comedian, and Pat Prescott, KTWV radio host, have served as hosts. The 2009 Starlight Jazz Serenade will also feature a silent auction and VIP reception; silent auction opens at 6:00pm, and concert begins at 8:00PM. Ring of Honor and VIP tickets include pre-concert reception at 6:00pm.
