From the Lowcountry Jazz Festival: 

To our Ticket Holders, Partners, and Donors,

Throughout this unprecedented time, we reflect on what is most important in our lives–family, friends, and community. We have been truly grateful that so many have contacted us regarding our plans for the 2020 Lowcountry Jazz Festival scheduled for Labor Day weekend. Now more than ever, we believe in the strength of our attendees and trust in the power of our resilience to carry on during this pandemic. As of now, the 2020 Lowcountry Jazz Festival will proceed as scheduled. Closing the Gap in Healthcare Board Members, several of which are members of the medical community, and I are closely monitoring the developments of COVID-19. We will make any necessary decisions as we approach the festival. You will be contacted immediately should anything change.

As the world is responding to the current situation, we are inspired by the sense of unity and compassion pouring from the jazz community. The Lowcountry Jazz Festival will continue to follow our mission of decreasing health disparities in our great country and community.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families at this time. Please know, we are anxiously awaiting and planning on seeing you in Charleston this coming September.

Stay strong. Stay indoors, and most of all, stay informed.

Dr. Thaddeus J. Bell

The Lowcountry Jazz Festival, South Carolina’s premiere annual Smooth Jazz event, returns to the Charleston Gaillard Center with a stellar lineup of superstar artists and up and coming instrumentalists and vocalists. The festival continues its Labor Day weekend tradition, kicking off Friday, September 4 with the All White Party Affair.

The Greater Charleston Lowcountry Jazz Festival is the primary fundraiser for Closing the Gap in Health Care, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose primary mission is decreasing health disparities and increasing health literacy, especially for African Americans and the underserved in our community, South Carolina, and the nation.

The organization airs radio and television health tips, publishes a weekly e-newsletter, and provides information on social media to improve health literacy. Lectures, seminars, and youth and community activities are also provided by Closing the Gap in Health Care, Inc.

Proceeds from our Festival support the mission of Closing the Gap in Health Care, Inc. and the Thaddeus John Bell, M.D. Endowment Fund. This scholarship fund was created conjointly with the Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina to assist students who pursue a health science degree and graduate from the Medical University of South Carolina. This will facilitate an increase in the number of African American health providers in the state.

The Greater Charleston Lowcountry Jazz Festival and Closing the Gap in Health Care, Inc. have made contributions, exceeding $250,000, to the Thaddeus John Bell, M.D. Endowment Fund!
