You can expect cheers, excitement, and sweet tears of emotion once again at this year’s “Jazz, Baby!” Fundraiser! Join us on Thursday evening, October 15, 2015 at the Foundry from 5:30 to 8:00 pm to support Friends of Tennesee’s Babies with Special Needs. Fast becoming one of the most anticipated events in town, the evening will feature a delicious and hearty selection of hors d’oeuvres and the swinging music of Vance Thompson, Knoxville Jazz Orchestra founder, leading an ensemble of local jazz musician friends. Dynamic auctioneer David Alley of Alley Auctions will conduct a live auction with an array of fantastic items donated by generous local businesses and friends.

This fun event will benefit Friends of Tennessee’s Babies with Special Needs, a nonprofit organization that supports young children with special needs and their families. Our target audience consists of over one thousand families in Knox and surrounding counties. We provide a Loaner Hearing Aid Bank for children with hearing loss, a Resource Library for families, Respite Care to give families a break when they need one and many free family events, including: Zoo Day, a Smokies’ Ballgame, and a Holiday party. We are totally supported by grants, personal donations and community volunteers.
