“The Jazz Foundation of America thanks and appreciates Ana Isabel O and what she andRuby Flower Productions are doing for our Englewood partners.
This year the JFA helped with 5,000 emergencies by paying rents and keeping hundreds of Jazz and Blues elders from eviction and homelessness and even created other 3,000 concerts in public schools across America, thought they could work and pay their own rent. The amazing saints at Englewood Hospital Medical Center continue to provide free medical care to our musicians in crisis, who have medical emergencies. Dr. Forte has never turn a musician away in the 19 years they have been done this and they have donated $ 5,000.000 in pro bono care and operations. They are not words that can express what they do. They have kept hundreds of musicians alive” ~ Jazz Foundation of America
