Independent Living Resources holding jazz-filled fundraiser


An Alabaster organization aimed at helping those with disabilities lead independent lives will be giving its supporters a chance to enjoy live jazz and wine at Morgan Creek Farms in Harpersville.

The event, titled “Jazz in the Vineyard,” will be held on May 21 from 5:30-10 p.m. at the vineyards, which are off U.S. 280. The event is sponsored by Independent Living Resources and will feature dinner, wine tasting, music and fireworks.

Tickets to the event are $30 per person and $50 per couple, and all proceeds will help ILR to build a new Independent Living Resources Center in downtown Birmingham, which will include a disability rights museum.

The event will also include a silent auction featuring a football signed by University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban and his coaching staff.
