““On behalf of everyone at Gray Matters Music Jam (GMMJ), THANK YOU! Your generosity and support of GMMJ helped raise $27,260 for the University of Wisconsin’s Carbone Cancer, every dollar of which will directly benefit brain cancer research. We’re still receiving contributions and final number continues to grow. Over 630 people attended the first Gray Matters Music Jam and enjoyed some of the best music east of the Mississippi. The Red Hot Horn Dawgs, Soul Candy with Traffic Jam and the Screamin’ Cucumbers rocked the house! And special thanks to Mark Pender who willingly gave his time and awesome trumpet skills over the entire weekend. We can’t thank you enough for giving of your time and talent – we could not have done it without you!””
