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 enthusiastic support!
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!

John Perry
