Artist in Residence and mentor of United Jazz Foundation Mike Burton is stepping up and supporting the young people of the U.S. Virgin Islands by organizing a hurricane relief concert on Sunday, September 24, 2017, at 6:00pm (doors open at 5:00pm) at 3220 Butner Road, Atlanta, Georgia. St. Croix Source reports:
All proceeds will go to re-building the Virgin Islands in collaboration with United Jazz Foundation. While most Virgin Islanders will be unable to go, it is heartwarming that people like Burton are rising to the task and doing what they can to help out.
The Sept. 24 concert will be asking spectators for a $20 donation for the relief effort. But musicians get in free with instruments.
