Alfonso Jerome Kimbrough Memorial ChristMASS Brass Home Page
Tri Valley Brass held the 2017 Alfonso Jerome Kimbrough Memorial ChristMASS Brass event on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at in Bergenfield NJ. In its third year, the event raised money and food for the local food banks and also money for the Boy Scouts Troop 139 of Bergenfield.
In addition to having nearly 60 musicians performing to a wonderful audience, we were joined this year by the St. John’s Youth Choir who sang for us. A 50/50 raffle and many trick tray donations made this a fun event for all, in addition to being for a good cause.
Teaming with Tri Valley Brass, Boy Scout Troop 139 hosted the event at their home, Conlon Hall at St. John’s the Evangelist Catholic Church in Bergenfield. Through donated registration fees, a 50/50, and a tricky tray, we were able to raise $800 for the food bank. In addition, many many bags of non perishable items were collected. Tri M of Hackensack HS, the music Honor Society, collected donations at their concerts in Hackensack and brought many bags of food to donate to our event. Through food concession sales, the Boy Scouts were able to raise enough money to again send a boy in need to camp this summer.
The tentative date for the 2018 ChristMASS Brass at Conlon Hall in Bergenfield NJ is Saturday, Dec. 8. Mark your calendars and we’ll see you then!!!
