    Name: South Shore Conservatory Presents 12th Chase Away the Winter Blues Gala
    Date: January 27, 2018 - January 28, 2018
    Event Description:
    South Shore Conservatory (SSC) celebrates its 12th year of Chase Away the Winter Blues gala on Saturday, January 27, from 6 pm to 12 midnight, at a new venue, the Boston Marriott Quincy, 1000 Marriot Drive in Quincy. The festive evening, an annual sell-out benefit, is filled with music, friendship and generosity and showcases SSC programs and faculty.
     
    Over the last eleven years, the South Shore community has come together to support Chase Away the Winter Blues in the belief that arts education is truly transformative for all, and should be available to everyone. All proceeds benefit SSC’s Community Partnerships, including ImagineArts, SSC’s arts and literacy program in the Brockton public schools, Creative Arts Therapy programs, and the tuition assistance program. Remarkably, last year the event raised $150,000 for outreach, education, and tuition assistance programs, affording students the opportunity to receive a music education.  SSC believes that everyone, regardless of age, ability or circumstance, can benefit from the transformative nature of a music and arts education.  Programming continues to expand, reaching more communities, and people, for whom this opportunity would not be possible because of aid or access barriers.
     
    Co-Chairs Linda Jones and Christine Puzo, along with a Blues committee comprised of SSC trustees, overseers, parents, friends and volunteers, are creating a fabulous evening featuring cocktails, a seated dinner, performance program and an exciting live auction with unique experiences, including a trip to South Africa, donated by Travel Sommelier. New this year, an After Party begins at 9 pm, featuring music and dancing by East Coast Soul, Sugar Ray Norcia and Anthony Geraci Blues Duo, and SSC faculty members.
     
    South Shore Conservatory thanks corporate sponsors Ameriprise and The Len Nolan Group, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Gagnon Tax, Massa Products Corporation, Quincy Mutual Group, Rockland Trust Charitable Foundation, Travel Sommelier, South Shore Bank and Whole Foods Market for their support of the Blues gala.
