                        Ernestine Anderson
Ernestine Anderson is one of the most beloved and versatile jazz vocalists to emerge from
the big band era. Years of singing and living have created a vocalist who can make your
heart cry one moment and dance the next. Poignant ballads, sassy swing and down-home
blues, Ernestine Anderson is master of them all. She has been performing worldwide for over
60 years and continues to perform all over the country, including New York, Chicago, and Los
Angeles, to name just a few. An excerpt from the New York Times Music section on February
15th exclaims, “Still in strong voice at 78, Ms. Anderson knows how to make stoicism feel
         Ernestine has recorded more than 30 albums, performed at all the major jazz festivals
world wide, and is a recipient of 4 Grammy nominations. She has worked with some of the
biggest names of her era, including Gene Harris, Hank Jones, Lionel Hampton, Ray Brown, Quincy Jones, Duke Ellington and
Count Basie.
         In 2004, Ms. Anderson received the IMPACT award from the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the Recording Academy,
which recognized her for her 60 year career and musical achievements. In addition, Ernestine was one of 75 women featured
in the book I Dream a World: Portraits of Black Women Who Changed America by Pulitzer Prize-winning Photographer Brian
Lanker, joining such company as Rosa Parks, Toni Morrison, and Oprah Winfrey.

Donors who purchase items at a charity auction may claim a charitable contribution deduction for the excess of the purchase price paid for an item over its fair market value.
The donor must be able to show, however, that he or she knew that the value of the item was less than the amount paid. For example, a charity may publish a catalog, given
to each person who attends an auction, providing a good faith estimate of items that will be available for bidding. Assuming the donor has no reason to doubt the accuracy
of the published estimate, if he or she pays more than the published value, the difference between the amount paid and the published value may constitute a charitable
contribution deduction. (Source:,,id=123204,00.html )

LF Mission Patch - Flown on Apollo 13
 The third scheduled lunar landing mission, Apollo 13, was launched without incident on the afternoon of April 11, 1970. The
 crew consisted of James A. Lovell Jr., Commander, John L. Swigert Jr., Command Module Pilot, and Fred W. Haise Jr., Lunar
 Module Pilot. Apollo 13 lunar module pilot, Fred Haise, recalls,

  “At just 56 hours into the mission, an oxygen tank explosion resulted in a major loss of electrical power to
 the Command and Service Module. This event caused a scrub of the lunar landing and forced us to move
 into the Lunar Module in order to survive a four day journey around the moon and return back to earth.
 Many individuals from NASA and our contractor team worked around the clock to ensure our safe return.”

                       After nearly four days of living in the Lunar Module, which was only designed to
                       sustain life for two days, the Command Module landed in the Pacific Ocean on April
                       17, 1970. Incredibly, all the crew members made it back to Earth safely.

                       You may own a rare piece of this remarkable voyage around the moon, a beta
                       cloth silk screened mission patch carried around the moon on Apollo 13. Fred
                       Haise has kept the patch in his own personal collection since the mission in 1970.
                       He has written “Flown around the moon on Apollo 13, Fred Haise, Apollo 13
                       LMP” along the bottom of the patch. Framing of the patch has been generously              Flown Mission Patch - Apollo 13

                                           Challenge Grant Matching Program
Each year the Haas Foundation raises funding for the challenge grant to encourage schools to take initiative and get involved in their
communities. The Challenge grant provides opportunities for schools to double the funds in their Haas account. At any time throughout the
year when a school participates in fund-raising for their school’s Haas account, the Foundation will match the proceeds, up to an additional
50% of the original grant amount awarded to the school in August. The net proceeds from the table sales and auction will contribute to
the Haas portion of the Matching Challenge Grant program and help us with our goal of expanding support to help 100% of secondary
schools in Washington State.

                                                       For New Schools
Each year the Haas Foundation invests in adding new schools. As a Haas Foundation funded secondary school (public or private), each
new school is provided with their own website and funding for that year. The aim of the Raise the Paddle portion of the evening is to
allow us to register new schools to broaden our support to those in need. At the Jazz with Haas event, the Haas Foundation will add
one new school for every $200 raised.

                     We would like to thank all our volunteers this evening.

  Help us recognize Danae Moore, who volunteers as our volunteer Coordinator. With Danae’s
leadership and strong organizational skills the Haas Foundation continues to implement its mission
               through the support of a dedicated and growing volunteer team.

                                                    Margaret Mead said it best:
                                                 “Never doubt that a small group of
                                                    thoughtful committed citizens
                                                        can change the world;
                                               indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

                   In 2006-07 the Haas Foundation’s 61 volunteers logged in
                 over 4,525 hours, saving the foundation $83,237 in expenses.

You are in for a treat! Many thanks to Dahli Bennett and her team for working with us to make this
a memorable evening. During the planning phase we have viewed the site numerous times, with the
caterer, sound crew, and steering committee and have always been greeted with a smile. We are
sure you will enjoy this special venue as well as their hospitality.
