  • Both groups brought back trophies for their efforts.

This is REALLY the Last Reminder about the JAMS Music-A-Thon

Hello Jane Addams Music Families,

We wrapped up the Friends of Jane Addams Music (FOJAM) Music-a-Thon on January 31—it’s our one fund drive of the year. Thanks to everyone who participated.

We’re wrapping up the fundraiser—really, you won’t hear from us about this again. We are really close to reaching our goal so we thought it would be worth ONE FINAL email.

So, here’s one last shout out to anyone who hasn’t donated yet:

If you have an envelope of donations sitting in your house, please ensure that your child brings it back to school.
If you meant to donate, but got too busy, that’s OK too. You can still click the donate button here or send a check to your child’s music class:

Thanks so much for your participation!

Everything you need to know about the Music-a-Thon can be found on the Music-a-Thon web page.
