Laissez les bon temps rouler! An afternoon of Jazz & Jambalaya will be held this weekend at French Quarter Café as a fundraiser in support of the Baobab Cultural Center and Ujima Rochester. The Baobab promotes a deeper understanding of African history and culture, and Ujima Rochester strives to make a positive difference in the lives of local at-risk-youth and their families. Tickets include a buffet of traditional New Orleans cuisine. A cash bar will be available, and entertainment will be provided by the Big band jazz and Dixie stylings of the Nate Rawls Band.
The Jazz & Jambalaya Fundraiser will happen on Sunday, July 29, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the French Quarter Cafe, 130 Spring Street. Tickets are $50 and should be purchased in advance through The Baobab Cultural Center (563-2145) or Ujima Rochester (770-765-5424). tryupliftingouryouth.org
