Euclid, Ohio……On Saturday November 19, 2011, LAB Inc. and C-Jam Foundation will organize a Jazz fundraiser for special needs children at the Shore Cultural Center in Euclid Ohio. Headlining the event will be world-renown Jazz group Acoustic Alchemy; along with featured act saxophonist Marcus Adams. Hosting this evening of Jazz will be former 107.3 the wave radio personality Carmen Kennedy.
“This event is for special needs children who are diagnosed with being mentally retarded autistic and attention deficit hyper disorder (ADHA) to name a few. Our goal is to raise money to build a wellness and resort for these children in Northeast Ohio, so that they may be able to participate in creative activities. And to provide a place that will support those parents who don’t have the time and resources to do it themselves,” said Lisa A. Baddger CEO/Co-Founder of C-Jam Group Foundation.
C-Jam Group Foundation will reveal their project plans to build a new facility that will be the home for a health and wellness resort. Lisa and her husband Timothy Baddger founded the foundation, back in 2005 and have been raising funds ever since to meet their 2015 deadline to build the health and wellness resort for special needs children.
The Baddgers’ were motivated to accomplish their resort goals, due to having children of their own who were diagnosed with being special needs children. “My daughters Ashley and Johnetta are special needs children,” expressed Lisa. Ashley Baddger, a type 1 diabetic went into diabetic coma at the age of four and flat lined three separate times in her life. Ashley was brought back to life each time, becoming the youngest diabetics to ever survive such an ordeal. Presently Ashley sports a beautiful singing voice as she pursues a professional singing and rapping career. Johnetta Bagger is presently an honor roll student at Bedford High School in the special needs program.
