Jam for Jobs was quite a night! We rocked out to the sounds of Bluebird Bio’s JC and the Beakers; Bullhorn, Inc.’s Stampede; Monster’s The Spicolis; and Pega's The Layer Cakes at Hard Rock Café Boston. Over 200 people turned out to raise $50,000 for our career development-job placement programs! Over 200 people turned out to raise $50,000 for our career development-job placement programs! Thanks to our distinguished judges—musician/entrepreneur Ven Thangaraj, singer/songwriter Jamie Lynn Hart, HearNowLive’s Danny Norwood, and award-winning producer, composer, musician Malik Williams—for taking on the hard work of picking a winner from our four bands!
Thanks also to emcee extraordinaire Amy Brooks, an award-winning on-air radio personality and voice talent, who kept things moving as we raffled off amazing gift packs featuring tickets to the Red Sox and Miss Saigon, a spa day at Avanti Salon Boston, a night at the Ritz Carlton, and dinner out at Ruth’s Chris Steak House! She also helped us auction off a pair of tickets located in the Cross Insurance Boardroom at TD Garden to Elton John's final concert and a Fender Telecaster!
Jam for Jobs would not have been possible without our Diamond Album sponsor Pegasystems, Inc; our Platinum Album sponsors Bullhorn and DipJar; our Gold Album sponsor Epiq Global; and our Silver Album sponsors Monster Worldwide, Inc. and CBRE Group.
