3rd Annual Jazz and Juleps Events Raise Over $14,000 for Local Projects
Carillon’s 3rd annual Jazz and Juleps fundraisers were a huge success, raising over $14,000 across 20 charitable organizations from around the state. The signature fundraising events will provide a much needed boost for local improvement projects, everything from establishing a butterfly garden for elementary students in Concord, NC, to helping abused and neglected pets receive medical care and find new homes in Salisbury.
All 20 “Jazz and Juleps on the Terrace” events put the “fun” in fundraising on Saturday, May 14. The events are a Southern springtime affair, complete with live jazz and mint juleps on Carillon’s rose-filled trellis patios. In the midst of all the fun and frivolity are significant community development initiatives. Carillon is proud to partner with local community and civic organizations, trusts, art and beautification committees that are making a difference in their communities.
At each event, Carillon and its local partners asked for donations of $25, $50, or $100+ to support these worthwhile projects. The level of donation determined chances to win one of six gifts and door prizes. Donations will be taken the day of the event, and participants’ names and donation level will be recorded on behalf of the local organization or committee who is spearheading the improvement project.
Signature community events like Jazz and Juleps on the Terrace help Carillon fulfill its mission to be a trusted community partner everywhere that Carillon operates an assisted living and Alzheimer’s care community. As part of that mission, Carillon creates opportunities for seniors to stay connected to the world around them – opportunities that enable older adults to keep growing, learning and making new connections of their own.
