On July 15, 2016, OneLove JamFest was honored to present a $8,200 donation to the Landon Korabek Memorial Scholarship at Marcia P. Hoffman School of the Arts, Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater. Joining us are Star Wars summer campers. The scholarship provides tuition assistance for students who wish to take classes at Hoffman School of the arts and who can show financial need. This year, we are pleased that 2 students, Jessie and Sarah, have been awarded scholarships. Hoffman School of the Arts is an excellent provider of arts education to all ages in the Tampa Bay Area and we are proud to be a sponsor for this organization. Thanks to everyone that support OneLove JamFest and our commitment to support arts education in memory of Landon’s love of music.
OneLove JamFest was honored to present NOPE Pinellas $20,160 from our fundraising event this past May. In 6 years, JamFest has donated over $95,000 to NOPE.
Last year, NOPE reached over 100,000 students in Pinellas County Schools by educating students on the dangers of prescription drug abuse. Every October, NOPE sponsors an annual candlelight vigil to remember those that struggle with addiction and those lost to addiction. This year three seniors were awarded NOPE scholarships for their active involvement in SADD (students against destructive decisions) groups in high school. NOPE is making a difference in our community through education and communication. Thanks to everyone that supports OneLove JamFest and our goal to save lives in memory of Landon. http://www.nopetaskforce.org/
It is with heartfelt gratitude that OneLove JamFest announces that we raised $28,320 at this year’s event on May 7.
