Donne in Musica

The Joy of Asking!

A fundraiser stood

At the heavenly gate

Her face was scarred and old.

She stood before the man of fate

For admission to the fold

"What have you done," St. Peter said,

"To gain admission here?"

"I've been a fundraiser, sir,

"For many and many a year."

The pearly gates swung open wide,

St. Peter rang the bell.

"Come in and choose your harp," he signed,

"You've had your share of hell!"

[From ASKING by Jerold Panas]


Dear Corporate Advertiser,

Our 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Women in Jazz South Florida, Inc. is going into it's 4th year. In the past three years, we've impacted our community greatly by bringing music performances by women and men to seniors, students and the community-at-large, through grants from BankAtlantic, Arts 4 Learning, Broward County Cultural Division, Broward Schools, the Cities of Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, Lauderhill and Miami Beach.

Our first compilation CD is available at: or


Our goal is to embark upon the EuroTour in June-July 2012. Corporate advertisers looking for visibility in Europe can benefit greatly, when we take a banner with us with logos of companies that provide us with a tax-deductible contribution of $50k-$100,000.


Every time we're on stage, radio, television or reviewed in a newspaper, our advertisers are  mentioned and the banner with their company logos is displayed. A corporation cannot purchase international advertisement of this grandeur for less than the underwriting we ask for.

The return on this investment cannot be determined, since the publicity needs of corporations vary. This is a huge opportunity for any corporation looking for branding in international business circles, this year. We represent your company with music and the beauty of talented women composers.


June 23 July 23, 2012 - We plan to visit:

  1. June 23-June 29 - Rome, Italy with a delegation of municipal officers from the City of Lauderhill that is twinning with Fiuggi, Italy, right now, as a result of our affiliation with Donne in Musica.     
  2. June 30-July 7 - Montreux, Switzerland (Montreux Music Festival)
  3. July 7-10 - Copenhagen, Denmark
  4. July 11-14 - Stockholm, Sweden
  5. July 19-23 - Cardiff, Wales
  6. July 15-18 - Belfast, Ireland

Our goal is to perform original music in each city with the expectation of being paid for each concert in order to further build our touring fund.

Please let us know of investors interested in supporting women's music on this international tour. The artists slated to travel with us is on our MISSION page:

We look forward to identifying corporations to take advantage of this opportunity to promote their products and services to the international community, through underwriting our EuroTour 2012.

I ask you to purchase our compilation CD and play it in your office or home. Listen to the video. You will be pleasantly entertained. Scroll up and make your purchase. CDs sales increases our touring fund.

If you or your colleagues need more information, please contact me.

Thank you,
