YouthJAM! Raises Money for Lauren Astley Fund
YouthJAM! rocked the First Parish Church in Weston's parish hall on Friday, October 14, 2011 when 70+ young people and their families gathered together to make music and raise funds for the Lauren Dunne Astley Memorial Fund.
Chosen by First Parish teens as the recipient for the proceeds of this YouthJAM!, the fund was founded to honor the life of Lauren, an 18 year-old graduate of Wayland High School who was passionate about the arts and community service. The fund's mission is to promote dynamic educational programs, particularly those focused on healthy teen relationships, the arts and community service.
This YouthJAM! event raised $300 for the fund; others can still support the fund by mailing a check payable to First Parish Church in Weston - Lauren Astley Fund to the First Parish Church Office, 349 Boston Post Road, Weston, MA 02493.
YouthJAM! thanks all the bands and volunteers - especially First Parish's Sammy Hooper who was MC!
