The Cool Jazz/Clean Water event has netted over $250,000 over the past nine years thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, door-busting attendance at the evening wine and beer events, auction donors and bidders, and donations from music-lovers throughout the community. The funds were used to build international clean water projects, buy and refurbish over 500 instruments which were distributed to four local school district music programs, and to organize and promote a youth leadership training course. The Rotary Clubs of Thurston County initiated the Cool Jazz/Clean Water Event in 2001 as a way to raise funds for an International Humanitarian Project that included water projects in Malawi Africa. 

Capital Centennial Club is delighted to be part of this event this year again, donating funds, sponsoring a gift basket and volunteering  at the event. great event for a great cause.
