      FOR | FROM CROATIA WITH LOVE

      The Aliis Inserviendo Consumor Foundation is launching a fundraising concert series "For | From Croatia With Love" which promotes Croatian culture, art and heritage in the United States. All proceeds will be used to aid the rebuilding of a Community center for adults with autistic disorder in Croatia. Currently 8,000 people have been diagnosed with autism in Croatia and the number of actual cases is estimated to be much higher.

      The first concert of the series will be a Jazz Gala held at the Allen Room at the Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City, located on 60th Street and Broadway on Saturday May 23, 2009 at 6:30 p.m. Performances start at 7:30 p.m. followed by a cocktail reception.

      The gala will feature an exclusive performance of "One Day In Dubrovnik" written by the late John Lewis of Modern Jazz Quartet fame and will performed by Davor Kajfes and the Bosko Petrovic Trio. There are guest appearances by world renowned American jazz musicians Lenny White, Buster Williams, George Calligan and the Biava String Quartet. The night will continue with performances by internationally recognized Croatian musicians: Matija Dedic, Elvis Stanic, Kruno Spisic and Thana Pavelic.

      The Aliis Inserviendo Consumor Foundation supports healthcare, education and social service programs around the world, particularly in those countries with limited institutional and financial resources. The foundation is from Latin and means "consumed in the service of others". For additional information, visit http://www.afoundation.org.
