Finally . . .
THERE'S A CAUSE WORTH SUPPORTING IN KANSAS CITY DURING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!!! CHECK OUT A HOLIDAY PARTY TO HELP OUT "THE JARDINE'S 15" WHO WERE ABRUPTLY FIRED AROUND X-MAS TIME!!!
Check the link to the facebook event
"For the benefit of "The Jardine's 15", an informal but organized gathering will take place on December 12th, 2011, 7:00pm at "The Point" (our friends and an old Jazz friendly venue). Plans are being made for a live band (most likely a Jardine's staple), and tip jars will... be available to help the "15" and the band(s) recover lost wages. Raffle drawings may be in place as well.
All fifteen staff members were fired without notice under false pretenses, and the doors of Jardine's were temporarily closed (hurting local professional jazz musicians) at the beginning of the 2011 holiday season. We believe the terminations were unjust, and used strategically by the owner to, at best, delay payment of moneys owed and cut costs without bearing any personal responsibility."
We're gonna keep posting about this event . . . But we just wanted to let you know FIRST!!! Natch.
