Jazz was a weekend highlight at the C.L. Hoover Opera House when the Kansas City Jazz Orchestra. It was all part of an effort to support the Aging Well senior living campus project in Junction City.

Henry Ford once said, "Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success." This is the case with many non-profit organizations in Junction City and was a contributing factor in the success of the jazz concert held Saturday to benefit Aging Well at the Spring Valley Campus.

Duane Blythe, Co-chair of Aging Well’s Board of Directors shared, “We are so thankful for The R2B4 Bramlage Family Foundation and the C.L. Hoover Opera House for going the extra mile to bring such a well-known orchestra to Junction City as well as give us the opportunity to share about the Aging Well project. We also would like to thank the Chamber of Commerce for helping promote the event as well as all who purchased tickets.”

Theresa Bramlage of The R2B4 Bramlage Family Foundation commented, “Our foundation is excited to be involved with Aging Well but also many other projects that we know will benefit Junction City. We are especially grateful when organizations come together to support one another. This concert was a joint effort, and we were thrilled to be a part of it.”

The proceeds from ticket sales and donations are designated towards Aging Well’s goal of raising $3.5 million to build a senior living campus offering small homes providing long term care and assisted living services. Blythe shared, “The community has been extremely supportive of the Aging Well project which has received over $2.2 million in donations since May of this year."
