Women’s group to present Raz-Ma-Tazz and All That Jazz

The Daytona Beach Section of the National Council of Negro Women Inc. will present “Raz-Ma-tazz and All That Jazz 2012” on Nov. 11 from 2 to 5 p.m.

The event, which will take place at the Center for Civic Engagement at Bethune-Cookman University, is a fundraiser for the group’s annual Black History Brain Bowl and other community projects. The center is located at 740 W. International Speedway Blvd. Parking is free.

Tickets for Raz-Ma-Tazz are $30 and available from members of the group. In addition to a meal, guests will be treated to the smooth jazz sounds of the Don Durkey Trio featuring Ted Adams.

“We hope the public will come out, enjoy a good meal, listen to some jazz and help us raise funds to underwrite the cost of prizes for next year’s brain bowl,” said Patricia Heard, program chair.

Academic competition in February
The academic competition, which takes place in February, is open to all middle and high school students in Volusia and Flagler counties. The purpose of this annual event is to encourage the study of African-American history.

“For the past seven years we have been able to reward the winning high school team with laptop computers and we hope to continue the tradition,” Heard said.

“We like to think that we are giving our students a hand up as they head off to college. We would like to be able to also give computers to the middle school winners.”

The National Council of Negro Women Inc. was founded in 1935 by Mary McLeod Bethune. The Daytona Beach section is one of more than 240 community-based sections organized to address local needs including developing and sponsoring educational projects.
