On Thursday December 22nd, Santa Jam 15 will take
place at the State Theatre in Falls Church Virginia. John Perry
(bass player for Tom Principato) started The Santa Jam in 1987 when
he lived in New Jersey and now passes the torch on to The State.
Santa Jam is a benefit for Doorways Homeless Shelter of Arlington
which provides safe shelter for homeless women and children and
victims of domestic violence as well as Music to Give - bringing
live music to childen in hospitals.
Admission is a minimum donation of $10.
Also, if you can, please bring an unwrapped child's
Christmas gift. There is a team of friends who collect gift certificates
from this areas finest restaurants, massage healing centers, golf
courses, Best Buy, etc. Raffle tickets can be purchased to win these
gift certificates, raising thousands of more dollars for Doorways
for Women & Families.
Not only are the toys brought to these shelters, but
the cash is converted to $10 gift certificates from Target. This
way the individual families or the shelters themselves can purchase
food, clothing, and toys distributed throughout the entire year
as they're needed.
They receive and use the unwrapped toys throughout
the year, for the holidays, birthdays and upon arrival. They say
a child feels much more welcome and less afraid when they receive
a toy they can call their own upon arrival.
These shelters benefit greatly from the generous donations
of Santa Jam's attendees. So come on out - have some fun - AND do
it for a good cause.
A message from John...
Dear Santa Jam supporters and volunteers,
After moving back home to the Jersey Shore last year, I’ve
decided to move our annual Santa Jam event back home as well where
it all began in 1987.
I’d like to personally thank each and everyone of you for
helping make Santa Jam such a fun and successful event each year.
For me it really became a reunion of sorts, celebrating the holiday
season with like minded friends aspiring to help local families
in need. It was a great run and I’m very grateful for your
And if you would, please continue the spirit by supporting “Doorways
For Women and Families” shelters this holiday season. A donation
of any amount goes a long way. Thank you!
