Jammin' 2012 Set to Rock to the Beat of a Heart

Nonprofits will be featured every event during the summer's roadside festival as Jammin' on Janesville will help Relay for Life, Muskego Food Pantry and Muskego Performing Arts Council.

While Jammin’ on Janesville’s primary mission is to showcase the city of Muskego and all its businesses, the event also has a charitable side.  According to a release from the Muskego Chamber of Commerce, the three-time event will highlight an individual nonprofit to help raise awareness and money for these causes.

June’s Jammin’ on Janesville will benefit American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, with Tres Locos serving as their sponsor.  Relay for Life is devoted to celebrating the lives of people who battle cancer, remembering loved ones lost, and fighting back against the disease. Assemble your Relay for Life team for by visiting www.relayforlife.org

Tres Locos will have luminaria available for purchase during June’s Jammin’ on Janesville to honor your loved one who has been touched by cancer, for the Relay for Life Luminaria Ceremony, hosted at Muskego High School’s track at 9:30 p.m., on June 1.  Tres Locos will also be one of dozens of food venues featured during Jammin’ on Janesville. They will also feature live entertainment with the band "5 Card Studs", a $1 menu and a margarita on their outdoor patio. 

On July 6, the Muskego Food Pantry will be the featured nonprofit. Generally, summer time is the leanest time of the year for food pantries across the area, and ours is no exception. Sandoval Dental will be the sponsor of the event's 'fill the dump truck' to address the shortage.

August 3 will wrap up the run of Jammin' and will focus on Muskego Performing Arts Council (MPAC). North Shore Bank and a contingent of churches that will be centered at Bethel Lutheran will be their sponsors.

MPAC sponsors the 'Muskego Idol' contest, which culminates at the Muskego Festival later in August, and will hold its first round of auditions at Bethel during Jammin' on Janesville. MPAC also helps to bring the Missoula Children's Theatre to the city every year for performances at the high school.
