Kenny G performs at fundraiser

February 28, 2013 by  

The 2013 Donovan’s Wine Dinner and Auction will take place in less than a month in San Diego’s popular Donovan’s Prime Seafood restaurant.

A special musical performance featuring Kenny G will be included in the event. Proceeds benefit San Diego Symphony’s music outreach and educational programs.

Kenny G is well-known for his smooth and contemporary jazz. He has been a popular musician since the 1980s and takes part in various music fundraising events across the country.

Benziger winery is contributing their fine wine during the cocktail reception, accompanied by hors d’oeuvres. A five-course dinner follows with select wine pairings. The Kenny G performance will take place after the dinner in an intimate setting within the restaurant facility.

With a community commitment to reach all segments, the San Diego Symphony presented 36 concerts as well as 300 special events in the 2011-2012 seasons. Over 58,000 students, ranging from toddler through adult, were reached through these impressive efforts. Complying with California State Learning Standards, local musicians are often active in assisting with the development of the programs.

Promoting fundraising events is a key initiative for the various partners involved in these types of events. Printing services are utilized from local print companies and normally include catalog printing. Catalogs serve as great promotional tools as they contain the full agenda for the event, information about venues, performers, food and beverage, and sponsors.

Tickets are on sale through the event website and range from $300 to $1000 depending on the package purchased. Kenny G performs on March 24 beginning at 5:30 pm.
