Presented by Cushman & Wakefield Commercial Property Southwest Florida, Jazz on the Green at Six Bends brings more than music. Guests may enjoy gourmet food, drinks, giveaways and dancing on the lawn for this all-white-attire event. The fundraising goal for this concert is to enable one wish each to be granted through the Make-A-Wish Southern Florida to two local children with critical illnesses.

While the crowd sways to the jazz dressed in their brightest whites, Jaguar Land Rover Fort Myers will display more than a dozen all-white vehicles lining Six Bends’ Thunder Plaza. Every ticket purchaser will automatically be entered to win one of two one-week rentals of either a Jaguar of Land Rover.

World-renowned saxophonist Jeff Rupert with his quintet will be the evening’s headline act. Fort Myers Senior High School’s Jazz Band and Brandon Robertson Music’s Quartet are also on the line up.
Guests will enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres from Artichoke and Company, Gather, Metro Diner and Sweet Melissa’s Cafe. Local craft beers from Rollin Taps and domestic beers from Budweiser.

Wishes are more than just a nice thing

A wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a life-threatening medical condition.

This one belief guides us in everything we do at Make-A-Wish®. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. It compels us to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives us to make our donated resources go as far as possible.

Most of all, it’s the founding principle of our vision to grant the wish of every eligible child.

Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved – wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.

Whatever the odds, whatever the obstacles … wishes find a way to make the world better.
