Carillon is set to kick off the company’s second annual Jazz and Juleps events statewide on Saturday, May 2. The signature fundraising events last year raised thousands for local improvement projects, everything from helping rehabilitate injured sea turtles near Southport, to improving a storied theatre and playhouse in Hendersonville.

All 19 “Jazz and Juleps on the Terrace” events will put the “fun” in fundraising.

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 are asking for donations of $25, $50, or $100+ to support these worthwhile projects. The level of donation will determine chances to win 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.

Check the Carillon website in the coming weeks to find out more about a Jazz and Juleps event at a Carillon community near you. And see the video here to get a peek into last year’s events.
