JUNGLE JAM TO ROAR INTO HOB FOR WORTHY CAUSE
Local Bands Star in Benefit for Bone Marrow Disease Research
Jungle Jam, a rocking benefit for bone marrow disease research, comes to Cleveland’s House of Blues (HOB) on Friday, October 17, 2008. Several well-known local bands will play between 6:30 p.m. and midnight.
Heart & Soul, Blues de Ville, Eclyptic, Horizontal Party and Rusnak Jarrett Jazz will share their unique sounds on the HOB stages. In addition to live music, Jungle Jam will feature a silent auction and special guest appearances. The ticket price includes hors d’oeuvres and drinks.
Proceeds from this unique event will benefit research for bone marrow diseases being conducted at Cleveland Clinic by Dr. Jaroslaw Maciejewski, one of the world’s foremost specialists. Bone marrow diseases are non-contagious, rare and potentially fatal illnesses in which blood production in the marrow is disrupted. Complications can arise, including the inability of blood to clot and susceptibility to infections. Right now, the only cure is a bone marrow transplant.
Jungle Jam was created by Jeff and Sherri Kitzberger of Cleveland Heights, whose 8-year-old daughter, Annalyse, was diagnosed with two bone marrow diseases in 2005.
Jungle Jam promises to be an upbeat, fun-filled event for a worthy cause. Tickets start at $125 and are available now and at the door. For ticket information, call 216-297-9062 or visit www.makeithappen4bmd.org.
