Doors open at 7, concert at 7:30. $15 in advance (through BPT) and $18 at the door. Concert features Jeff on keyboard, Ali Manion doing vocals and a cadre of other fine jazz musicians. All proceeds go to UBECI (visit UBECI.org), an Ecuadorian non-profit whose mission is to gather street and market children in Quito, Ecuador, teach them basic skills and enroll them in school. In over fifteen years, UBECI has placed over a thousand kids in local schools and helped break the cycle of poverty of their illiterate parents. Jeff is the head of the US based UBECI Foundation and has visited Quito seven times since 2009. A brief video describing the project will be shown. Refreshments served at intermission.
