After several years’ hiatus putting on the event (thanks to North Fresno Rotary for taking the baton), Storyland & Jazz came home to CARC August 17, 2013. It was a rousing success.
Raising a net of more than $25,000, jazz musicians headlined by Karen Marguth, the After Dinner Mints, and Rumba 32 entertained the crowd during the evening. Guests were greeted by the college group The Jazz Extension, bid on silent auction items ranging from a Captain’s desk to art to jewelry, and enjoyed food from more than 15 local restaurants.
Club members spent hours and days preparing the park for the guests, helping clean up Storyland, adding flowers and landscaping elements, and painting the dragon and other characters enjoyed by all. We thank sponsors Dan Martin, Ann and Nat Dellavalle, and Granville Homes for their support. WATCH FOR AUGUST 2014 DATE COMING SOON!
