HapCo Music Foundation is asking the community for assistance in enabling local students to attend its summer jazz camp. 

The camp, which takes place July 17-22, offers a day camp or over night camp option for students. Instructors including Bernie Hendricks, Wycliffe Gordon, Lenard Rutledge, Scott Wilson, Dr. Otto Gomez and Andrew Kennedy will be on hand for young musicians and vocalists to improve upon their talent. Students from grades 7-12 can enjoy instruction from full ensemble rehearsals, sectionals, master classes, combo workshops to theory, jazz history and improvisation training.

HapCo seeks to build character and bright futures in youth through music education, particularly for students living in low-income communities. Many of these students will need assistance to afford the camp. HapCo asks that people seeking to help promote HapCo’s spring fundraiser. 

Supporters can sign up and create a personal promotion code and a sample email to send out about the camp and the raffle. 

Supporters will promote the raffle to their friends and family, where people can purchase a ticket with a $50 suggested donation to enter a raffle for a 2016 Smart Pure Coupe. 

If ten tickets are distributed, a student can attend the camp for free, choosing either the day camp or overnight camp option. Five tickets will allow a student to attend for 50% off.
