Jazz Weekend Supporters

We are able to offer a high quality showcase of internationally acclaimed Jazz acts at no charge because of our sponsors and supporters. 

We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Kenneth and Susan Gruskin and Gruskin Creative for their years of generous support and their dedication to one of our most vital programs.

Kenneth and Susan Gruskin are more than just sponsors and supporters of our Jazz Weekend program – they are the type of “angels” all arts-organizations hope to have. Their passion for Jazz and the mission of the program, combined with their creative input and generously donated award-winning graphic design, have elevated the program beyond what we would be capable of without them.

It is hard to convey just how important individual, business, municipal, and foundation support is to the success of our organization. Support comes in many forms and all forms of support matter. Those that donate their time, their money, their experience and expertise, and those who advocate for us in the community are all invaluable and not only help us fulfill our mission, but help us do it in the most strategic and impactful way. We are able to present world-class programs, all for free, because of the commitment of many.
