US FCU to Jazz Up Community Event
BURNSVILLE, Minn. - As title sponsor of the popular Art and All That Jazz Festival, US Federal Credit Union is building its presence in the community. The festival, free and open to the public, offers jazz music by national talent Nick Colionne and local high school all-star musicians along with dozens of local artists displaying and selling their work. "We're delighted to play a role in the community we serve by being involved with this one of a kind event," said USFCU President/CEO Bill Raker. "It offers a unique venue for a community gathering, bringing a diverse group of people together to enjoy music and art - it's not your typical county fair." While being an exciting attraction for local residents, the festival also benefits the community monetarily. Profits will be used to expand next year's event with 10% of the net proceeds donated to a local charity. "As the festival grows it will likely draw national attention and demonstrate how great this area is to live in and conduct business," said Raker. The festival will be held on August 20, from 11 AM to 10 PM.
