The Universal City-North Hollywood Jaycees (Junior Chamber) and The Arts Council at Los Angeles Valley College are teaming up to present a Classical Recital at the College to benefit the Jaycees annual “Operation: Santa” project this holiday season. Since 1998 hundreds of low-income children have received toys and gifts from the Operation: Santa program.
The recital features Jaycee member Ermin Cruz III (Baritone) along with Greg Schreiner (Piano) and will include an evening of Mozart, Gounod, Schubert, Scarlatti, Abelardo, Sondheim, Rodgers & Hammerstein, et al. Trader Joe’s Studio City and Cap’n Cork Los Feliz will be donating food and beverage for the reception. Los Angeles Valley College is donating the Music Hall for the recital performance and giving a private tour of the newly renovated Art Gallery and exhibit entitled "Private Passions The Faculty Collects."
The Junior Chamber is an international organization with chapters in nearly every country. Members include adults aged 18-40 that range from young professionals interested in networking and socializing to regular, every-day folks that just want to do something good in their community.
The Jaycees have advertising opportunities available for the recital program, and are also seeking both monetary and in-kind donations for the Operation: Santa project, as well as volunteers. For more info about the Jaycees, visit www.ucnhjaycees.com or call: 818-628-0334.
