Jazz Concert, benefitting Dan’s House of Hope

Jazz Concert, benefitting  Dan’s House of Hope
Hosted by Xavier High School
May 29, 2012

We had a terrific turnout of over 300 people at the May 29, 2012, jazz concert hosted by Xavier High School.  This wonderful event was organized by Xavier HS class of 2013 student Connor Pietrzak, with free will donations to Dan’s House of Hope totaling almost $3,700.00.  Thank you to Connor, and to all of the Xavier HS teachers and staff who supported him, without whose help this would not have been possible. 

Thank you also to the guest artists, Christine Granatella and Jose Encarnacion, to the St. Joseph MS and Xavier HS artists and their amazing directors, Kate Hardt and Ian McKnight, and to all of the event sponsors.  Also a special thanks to Ann & Steve McKnight for sponsoring the event programs, and to Bill Gellerman of Bill Gellerman Photography for donating his time and energy to capture images of the evening.

Finally, thank you to all of you who attended the event, and for your support of DHOH.  You are helping to raise awareness about the stark realities of Adolescent & Young Adult (AYA) cancer, and to ultimately making a difference in the lives of those vastly underserved and mostly unrecognized AYAs who are in the fight against cancer.  The DHOH Board of Directors and all of our volunteers are deeply indebted to you.

Warm regards,

Roger & Dawn Kenneavy
