Description

Create Now is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1996 that transforms the lives of youth in need through creative arts mentoring and opportunities. We serve abused, homeless, incarcerated and other challenged youth ages 2-21 with our therapeutic programs in music, writing, visual arts, dance, theatre and more.

Each year, we also bring thousands of these "forgotten children" who have fallen through the cracks to concerts, plays and other cultural events at premiere venues in the region. We have reached 35,000 of the most troubled youth in Southern California during the last 18 years.

We are hosting a special event: A NIGHT OF GREAT SAX with Grammy-nominated smooth jazz saxophonist Dave Koz and award-winning saxophonist Michael Lington. The event will take place on October 12 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm at a stylish place in Pasadena that can hold 250 people. There will be an auction, drinks/hors d'oeuvres and a lot of mingling in addition to the concert.

Create Now seeks interns who can dedicate time to help us put this together. While much of the work can be done virtually from your home, we prefer interns who are local to the Los Angeles area. Having a car is especially helpful but not required. We will pay for any mileage incurred. Our goal is to find volunteers who can help with the following:

* Silent Auction (help find items and services)

* Program (ad sales)

* Marketing & PR (including a red carpet event)

* Identifying and Recruiting Corporate Sponsors

Please let us know your previous experience and specific interests in helping out. Send an email to: jill@createnow.org.

Thanks!
