The proceeds of this fundraiser will go towards Take One’s trip to Puerto Vallarta where they will headline the Puerto Vallarta Invitational Jazz Festival. Gregerman said that Take One performed at the festival in 2010. “Based on the fact that we brought the house down when we performed, they asked us back to the festival as a headliner.” Take One will also perform at an outreach concert for the local schools in Mexico, where they will distribute school supplies.
