News Tip: Lunch with Quincy Jones Auctioned for Charity!
(Published: March 09, 2010)
I am reaching out to you to let you know about a brand new item in our Center for the Advancement of Women auction that would make some very lucky music fans' dreams come true.
The highest bidder and a guest will have the luxury of meeting and dining with the one and only Quincy Jones at one of his favorite restaurants in either LA or NY. Jones has partnered up with charitybuzz's Center for the Advancement of Women auction with this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
This legend has truly done it all: he has branded himself as an American music conductor, record producer, musical arranger, film composer, television producer and trumpeter. As a master inventor of musical hybrids, he has shuffled pop, soul, hip-hop, jazz, classical, African and Brazilian music into many dazzling fusions, traversing virtually every medium, including records, live performance, movies and television.
With more than 50 years experience in the entertainment industry, Jones has earned a record 79 Grammy Award nominations, 27 Grammys, including a Grammy Legend Award in 1991. He is best known as the producer of the late Michael Jackson's album Thriller, which has sold over 110 million copies worldwide, and as the producer and conductor of the charity song "We Are the World."
The Center for the Advancement of Women, led by Faye Wattleton, is a not-for-profit institution dedicated to research-based education and advocacy for women. Founded in 1995, their mission is to conduct national opinion research among women to measure experiences in their daily lives.
Charitybuzz auctions VIP experiences and luxury goods on its web site to raise millions for nonprofits around the globe. Its cache of A-list celebrities and elite luxury brands attract a global audience excited to snag exclusive opportunities that ultimately give back.
