    The Sweet Sound of Jazz is our biggest fundraiser of the year. This helps the Boosters to fund core program needs including uniforms, travel expenses, guest instructors, and scholarship assistance.

    This year's theme is "All That Jazz:  Jazz goes to Hollywood!"

    We're looking for volunteers to help with food, decorations, and especially businesses to be event sponsors and items to put in the SSOJ auction. If you have items to donate or know a business who might sponsor, use our donation request letter and form to make asking easy:

    or email your donations or leads to our SSOJ chairs: Amy Geoffroy or Kelly McCollum
