Jazzy day proves popular
What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than listen to top quality jazz music and raise money for Pohlen Hospital at the same time.
That’s what Jazzamataz organiser Leo Kingston had to say, with a big smile on his face, as he looked over Longlands Farm and Restaurant packed full of happy people.
More than $2500 was raised for the locally funded hospital over the weekend thanks to the sold out event. A total of 130 tickets were sold.
Kingston said the day was amazing and he was blown away by the support everyone had showed.
‘‘Everyone’s happy, chilling out and enjoying the music. What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon?’’.
Due to its success, Jazzamataz will turn into a regular occurrence.
