Thanks to those that sent in their "Listener's Choice" suggestions, we appreciate your input on our song selections for this Special Evening. As a quick reminder, here are the planned activities to raise funds:

60/40 raffle -- 60% to the fund -- 40% to the winner, tickets are $2.00 each or 6 tickets for $10.00 second and third tickets drawn will receive a $25.00 Gift Certificate to Mullen's Bar & Grill;

Raffle to "conduct" the band -- this should be a lot of fun for someone and a GREAT photo-op, tickets are $5.00 each;

Double YOUR Donation -- We received a generous offer to help you double your donation with a matching donation up to the first $1,000.00 raised. Your $10.00 donation becomes $20.00, your $20.00 donation becomes $40.00 and so on . . . We hope you'll help us fully appreciate this generous offer!

Other items of interest for the evening:

The first two recipients of the Bill May Jazz Education Fund -- Matt Capone and Carlos Garcia, both of Hoffman Estates High School, will be sitting with the band on a couple of songs;

Don't forget --- to take advantage of the generous offer from Capri Ristorante, next door to FitzGerald's. * * * Capri is offering a 15% discount to Jazz Community fans Nov. 7. Capri Express Menu is attached. It's best to Call Ahead to place your order for pick-up so Capri won't be inundated with orders all at once. Call 708-637-4250 and mention Jazz Community. Food can be carried into FitzGerald's so you can enjoy dinner while listening to the band.
