Jazz Singer Armi Grano Headlines Families at the Dump Fundraiser

Richard Williams - Vallarta Yacht Club
January 14, 2014

Put a big check mark on Monday, February 3rd, in your calendars to attend a benefit dinner show featuring vocalist Armi Grano at the Vallarta Yacht Club. Dinner will be served at 6:00 pm and the concert will follow.

Ms. Grano will donate her personal fee to the Families at the Dump on behalf of the Vallarta Yacht Club. As a cancer survivor, Armi works hard to give back to the community. She is often involved in fund raising events such as the B. C. Children's Hospital Telethon, Basics for Babies, CIBC Run for the Cure and United Way Campaign. Part of this philanthropic focus was manifested in Armi being featured in the "Look Good Feel Better" magazine of the CCTFA, which came out with issues of Chatelaine, Canadian Living and Flare magazines.
Armi is one of the finest jazz vocalists on the contemporary jazz music scene today.  With five albums recorded, she is enjoying CD sales and airplay all over Canada, USA, Mexico, England and Asia and is able to captivate audiences all over the world by singing in more than 6 different languages.

Her influences include Ella Fitzgerald, Sara Vaughn, Astrud Gilberto and Anita O'Day, which developed her own blend of music featuring an exciting mix of Latin, pop, swing and jazz influences.
Armi has appeared in numerous local and international musical events such as the Dragon Boat Festival, Pacific National Exhibition and the Vancouver International Jazz Festival. She is the owner of the Encore restaurant and jazz lounge in Bucerias.
Since this is a benefit for the Families at the Dump, this dinner show will be open to all in the community. Reservations will be open to Vallarta Yacht Club members starting on January 15th and to the general public starting on January 22nd.
The evening's menu will be Cream of Corn Soup, Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast and Apple Strudel. A vegetarian entrée is available (must be requested when you make your reservation). The cost for the dinner show will be 350 pesos.
The Vallarta Yacht Club is located adjacent to Paradise Village Resort and Marina in Nuevo Vallarta (near the boat ramp).

For reservations please contact Rudy or Daniel at the club. The phone number is (322) 297-2222. Seating will be limited to 120 people so please make your reservations early.
