Mayor’s Jazz Jam

On October 8, 2011, the City of Fontana and Mayor will host a Mayor’s Jazz Jam beginning at 6:00 pm at the Fontana Community Senior Center as a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club of Fontana.

“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to serve as the Mayor of the City of Fontana,” states Mayor Acquanetta Warren. “While speaking directly with many of you, the subject most often turned to talk about these tough economic times and the needs of the youth of our community. With parents losing jobs and homes, these children need nurturing relationships with supportive adults; guidance with schoolwork and academic development; opportunities to explore career options; healthy and responsible lifestyle mentoring; and a robust program of recreation, fitness, arts, technology and citizenship.”

“I would like to see the Boys & Girls Club of Fontana be able to provide these opportunities to thousands of Fontana’s young people,” states Mayor Warren.

“The Boys & Girls Club of Fontana is a very important program for our community because it helps shape the future of our children, particularly those who may otherwise not have the positive reinforcement and environment essential to success.”
