End of the Fiscal Year Drive
Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: June 18, 2015
Every time you experience a live performance of Jazz, it’s an original. At Jazz 88.3, we like that originality. We are celebrating with a campaign to end our fiscal year on budget with some other San Diego originals. We’ve partnered with Rubio’s and Blind Lady Ale House, Tiger! Tiger! and Panama 66, for example, to thank donors who help us keep that fiscal needle in the  black with some tasty original San Diego gastronomic experiences. And we’ve culled some original audio experiences, too, including a new CD from Sue Palmer that hasn’t even been released yet!  
Take a moment and go to our Support Jazz 88.3 page, and consider which San Diego Original you’d like to add to your collection.
