All of us at the Riverwest Artists Association and the Jazz Gallery Center for the Arts would like the extend a very heartfelt, thank you to all who supported the Raise the Roof fundraiser. We didn't quite meet our goal, but we raised a very significant amount which has provided the ongoing momentum for us to secure the needed funds.

Thank you all for your generosity!!

If you missed out, donations can always be made directly to the Riverwest Artists Association via check or using PayPal.

For the supporters who selected Perks with their donation, more information and those orders will be on their way soon!
