Join Lincoln Foundation for the 21st Annual Evening of Jazz on August 19 at The KCD Theater located on the Kentucky Country Day Campus.  The evening of exceptional entertainment will benefit the Whitney M. YOUNG Scholars Program®.  The college-prep program, annually serving 350 socioeconomically disadvantaged youth in grades 7 -12, stresses academic achievement and college graduation. 
 
The fundraiser begins at 5:30 p.m. with a pre-concert reception complete with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. This year’s concert, which will begin at 7:00 p.m., will feature The Dick Sisto/Steve Allee Quartet with Jeremy Allen and Jason Tiemann playing original music from their recent nationally acclaimed CD entitled “Earth Tones”. CD’s will be available for purchase with a portion of the proceeds  benefiting the Whitney M. YOUNG Scholars Program®. The Percussion Ensemble (TPE), directed by Dick Sisto, will open the concert. In 2014 the TPE was created to expand the musical repertoire of the River City Drum Corp. Their existence is due to the vision and dedication of founder and Executive Director Ed (Nardie) White.
 
The prestigious Spirit of Excellence Award will be presented to Diane Porter, a community leader, retired educator and member of the Jefferson County Board of Education.
