Jazz on the Green, the popular Fort Myers music festival, will be resurrected on Saturday, March 10, 2018 from 5-9 p.m. at Six Bends and offer three notable music ensembles to raise money for Make-a-Wish Southern Florida. VIP tickets are on sale at an early bird rate of $75 from Nov. 8-30, just in time for the holiday shopping season.
Presented by Cushman & Wakefield Commercial Property SWFL, Jazz on the Green at Six Bends offers more than music. Guests may enjoy gourmet food, drinks, giveaways and dancing on the lawn for this all-white-attire event. The fundraising goal for this concert is to enable one wish each to be granted through Make-a-Wish Southern Florida to two local children with critical illnesses.
A limited number of VIP tickets are available at an early bird rate of $75 until Nov. 30. VIP guests can indulge in a true concierge experience, including complimentary heavy hors-d’oeuvres plus cocktails, an embroidered lawn blanket and VIP seating in front of the stage with room to dance. Any VIP tickets remaining after Dec. 1 will be available for purchase for $100. Premier and general admission ticket sales will also begin Dec. 1.
