Jimmy Ray will be reading some of his very own poetry. He has been writing for years and has read at various Barnes and Noble poetry nights as well as for private events such as the Children’s Aid Society and the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in the Lower East Side. I will have a quartet to do a jam session along with guests who arrive to sit in and donate their time.

We will be raising funds for CURA Inc. which is dedicated to saving lives through their many programs and services designed to help the Latino community members who suffer from Drug and Alcohol abuse problems. CURA Inc. is a 501(c)3, not for profit organization.
