SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Smith Studio Jazz Band will perform such classics as “Fly Me to the Moon” during a benefit Valentine’s concert and dance at the Unitarian Universalist Society’s Channing Hall, 10 S. Gilbert St., from 7:30-9:30 p.m. Friday.

The event is free and open to the public, although donations will benefit the 1105 Project, a collaboration of four Johnson County human-service agencies raising money to pay for renovations to 1105 S. Gilbert Court so they can share the space and better serve clients in need.

The agencies include the Crisis Center, Free Lunch Program, Domestic Violence Intervention Program, and the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Thanks to a recent pledge by the city of Iowa City, all gifts to the project received by April 14 will be worth 50 percent more to the collaboration, which still needs $300,000 to pay off the renovation. The city has agreed to match new gifts up to $100,000.

The event is hosted by the Unitarian Universalist Society of Iowa City as part of its “30 Days of Love” celebration, which began on the late Martin Luther King’s birthday and has included cleaning homes for people with disabilities, knitting items for the needy, and performing music in nursing homes.

The Smith Studio Jazz Band will perform under the direction of Suzanne Smith. The 1105 Project is grateful for the society’s support.
