Blue Jeans For The Blues For Alabama Blues Project

Blue Jeans For The BluesWant a fun and easy way for your workplace to support the Alabama Blues Project?

That $5 you found in your pocket can buy you the chance to shed your business suit and wear blues jeans to the office while supporting a great cause! The Alabama Blues Project is asking businesses to participate in their first annual "Blue Jeans for the Blues" on Friday, April 3. The event will raise funds to help the ABP continue their mission of promoting Alabama’s rich Blues heritage and passing it on to future generations through its award-winning Blues camps and school programs, designed particularly to benefit at-risk children and underserved areas.

How does it work? Businesses agree to appoint a coordinator within their company to collect $5 from each participating employee in exchange for the opportunity to wear blue jeans to work on April 3. This is a fashion statement with a cause! Inviting staff to wear their favorite pair of blue jeans to work for a "casual Friday" is a fun and comfortable way to generate good feelings for both staff and customers. The Alabama Blues Project will provide promotional flyers to each participating business providing customers information regarding the company’s generosity and commitment to the community.

Participating Businesses will also have the opportunity to be promoted as sponsors of the 2009 Open House Blues Extravaganza. For the second year, the Alabama Blues Project Spring After-School Camp students will showcase their talents on the big stage at the Bama Theatre on May 1. The audience will also be treated to a special performance by the 2008 Blues Music Award winner for Best Male Soul Blues Artist Bobby Rush!

All participating businesses receive acknowledgement and publicity for their support of these wonderful community events. The level of sponsorship recognized in promotional materials is based on the amount a business donates and/or raises through “Blue Jeans for the Blues.”

Please contact Cara Smith at (205) 752-6263 or cara@alabamablues.org to participate in "Blue Jeans for the Blues!
