Calling for nominations for our 3rd Annual
Making A Difference Award!
Last year, Jazz Bridge honored jazz advocate Thelma Anderson for her wonderful work with the jazz community for many decades and the year before that we honored the late Trudy Pitts, one of our most treasured jazz musicians.
Now it's time to nominate the person YOU think should get the award this year at our December benefit. The nominee does not have to be a musician, but he or she MUST have a strong record of service to the jazz community. This honor also carries a cash award of $250.
Please send a nominating paragraph of a least 150 words to Kim Tucker at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, you can nominate yourself!
