VIP Sponsor’s Party for 25 (twenty-five) of your friends at Le Café Jazz.

At just $40 (forty dollars) per guest you would help the Skipp Pearson Jazz Foundation raise $1,000 (thousand dollars) in support of its projects and public programs while helping to insure the rich history of Jazz Music in South Carolina will live on for generations to discover and enjoy.

Help honor the men and women who developed South Carolina’s jazz scene by spending an exciting evening with us.
