Good Day Friends & Neighbors:

First, let us first express our sincere hope that you, your family, friends, and neighbors are well and in good health. Now it is time to enjoy our beautiful city and bayfront.

IMPORTANT SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: THE 32nd ANNUAL BAY JAMMIN CONCERT & CINEMA SERIES - 2022 IS BACK AGAIN

BUT WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT. AS YOU MAY NOT BE AWARE, THE BAY JAMMIN SERIES (BJS) IS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN A NON-PROFIT ENTITY. WE HAVE EXISTED THESE 32 YEARS THROUGH THE GENEROUS DONATIONS AND SPONSORSHIPS FROM BOTH OUR LOCAL BUSINESS COMMUNITY & THE MANY PEOPLE WE CALL OUR NEIGHBORS. IT IS AS SIMPLE AS THAT.

p

YES, WE NEED YOUR HELP. You can donate $5, 10, 20, 30, 50, or $100.00, Yes, or even more. Large or small gift donations, it all help.

WHY? The shows, both the music and the movies are not free; they all come with a price attached. Bay Jammin Series is a Nonprofit...we need your support.

The capability to raise the necessary donations to pay for the Bay Jammin Series expenses: musicians, sound and lighting technicians, movie licensing, printing, advertisement and trash pickup. This series is truly a private and public sector collaboration. The series expenses come solely from the private sponsorship donations by our generous local businesses and individual community citizens. The city generously and graciously supports the Bay Jammin Series with our wonderful location, logistics, support staff, utilities, and security. That is the beauty of the series, a private sector and public sector collaboration for 30 years.

Okay: What now? Plan for the Bay Jammin Concert & Cinema Series 2021 Season, the New 32nd. So, we had a hiccup, 2020 season did not happen. But we came back strong in 2021.

We had to do the same in 2011 for the City Bond work that remodeled the Anderson Amphitheater, the park grounds, the Cole Park fishing pier, and so much more. We came back a year later, in 2012, better than ever. We can do it again with your needed help.

I guess you're wondering, well, how can I, as a member of the Corpus Christi Community, help. Well, gee whiz, you certainly can. Think of those years that you, your family, friends, neighbors, and out-of-town guests have attended the Bay Jammin Concert & Cinema Series. The event and location are easily accessible, comfortable, and beautiful Cole Park Anderson Amphitheater looking over our gorgeous Corpus Christi bayfront and downtown cityscape.

p

We request that you can also help us by being a part of the 32ndseason. As you are aware, most of our sponsors are local businesses; most are in the food, beverage, and entertainment industry. They all have had a challenging time in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid-19 and the Polar Vortex. These terrific small businesses listed on our past seasons' posters and hung on the stage walls these many years have always supported the Bay Jammin Series and the Corpus Christi Community. So please support the Bay Jammin Concert & Cinema Series and our local Corpus Christi Businesses. I know these have been difficult times for all of us, but maybe you can Give a Little for a Lot of Reward. Think of it as a small overdue fee or a gift to the future.

For all these seasons Past, Present & Future, Free Family Fun = All Kinds of Entertainment for All Kinds of People. Every little bit helps: $5, $10, $20, $50 or $100....big or or small donation, it will all help us meet our goal. Note: depending on the Unknown Factors listed above the proceeds raised will be designated as always toward the Bay Jammin Series 2021 for the 31st. Season. Please scroll below concerning the Bay Jammin Series background history and information, Plus how to donate via the Go Fund Me listed on this document and or in our Bay Jammin Series Facebook page and group site.

Who would have believed that a conversation over lunch at Cantina Santa Fe in 1989 would result in 30 years of free, quality entertainment for the whole family? Since that time, the Bay Jammin Concert and Cinema Series has been a FREE nonprofit event serving Corpus Christi with family friendly music and movies.

p


But it can only happen with your continued support, as we depend on donations for our success.

We have set up this GoFundMe link so individuals and businesses may donate directly to our Bay Jammin Series Inc , a nonprofit account set up to fund the Bay Jammin Series over these many seasons. Once we have ample funding in our BJS account we will begin the budget process of booking bands and selecting movies.




So, what is the Bay Jammin Concert & Cinema Series? Okay here is the history.

What a great way to entertain our citizenry while also promoting the city to visitors and tourists.
