International Dove Aid is a non-profit organization whose goals include long-term solutions for hunger, battered women and children, homelessness, affordable housing, cancer awareness, assisted living for senior citizens and the disabled, and a soup kitchen on site.
Jazz for Peace founder Rick DellaRatta is now considered by many to be one of the finest Singer/Pianists performing today and one of only a handful of Jazz Artists who can make a successful musical presentation to a large audience without having to abandon the true art form of Jazz. His recent Africa/ India tour won the Hark Award for outstanding Documentary Project and was included on The Foundation Center's list of top musician philanthropists with Bono, Elton John, Peter Gabriel, and Sting. Rick and his group JAZZ FOR PEACE™ have been quoted in numerous publications ranging from USA's LasVegas.com to Africa's The New Ghanian as "One of the most significant cultural events of our time!" Outstanding local acts Jazz in Pink and Sir George will round out this wonderful program.
