Comments from Jump in and Jam I - 2018

"Thank you for once again inviting us to Betsy’s birthday celebration- Jump in and Jam! It was absolutely delightful. The music was awesome, the food was delicious and your family and friends were warm and welcoming. The nucleus of course was sweet Betsy, the Birthday girl! Her contagious smile melted our hearts. She simply exudes joy. What an honor to support and celebrate her life with all of her friends at Misericordia."
With grateful hearts,
Lois, Dennis, and David Gates

”Jump, Jive and you Wail, stop by, don’t bail.
Rock, Soul and R&B, these cats are Hot.
Do you want to miss this? I say NOT.
Great food, great people and great cause.
Cruisin’ with your squeeze then you gotta take the shot.
Make new friends-No one is a stranger.
It’s all adventure-food, music, friends and Betsy -no danger."
John P. Marren

"We had a great time celebrating Betsy’s birthday and supporting Misericordia. The whole night had a good vibe—cool place, good people with different connections to you all and Mis, great music. We loved the food; I somehow missed the deep-fried kale, but there  was an unlimited supply of everything. We will be there again this year if the management let’s Debbie return."
Best to you all and Betsy.
Debbie and Gay Villers

The McMenamins had a great time at last year's "Jump in and Jam" birthday celebration for Betsy and fundraiser for Misericordia. The food was excellent, the music fun, and the auction items exciting, so much so that we are looking forward to "Jump in and Jam II."
Dr. Frank and Rosalie Mcmenamin

"Great music, delicious food, a fun place, and a terrific cause. All that, and some of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. We really enjoyed it last year, and we’re looking forward to November 16 to do it again!"
Joel Bookman

"This is a fun event in a wonderful venue. Most importantly, it raises money for a terrific cause."
Erin Moran

"We are so happy to see "Jump and Jam" is back for another year! We had So Much Fun last year supporting and showing our love for Misericordia! The food, drinks, music, laughing with old and new friends...We Had a Blast!'
Cristi, Rakesh & Nicholas Parikh

"We are so excited for the next “Jump In and Jam” for Betsy in November! Dave and I had so much fun last year. A great venue with tasty food, talented entertainment and an opportunity to meet up with dear friends and meet new people. And even more enjoyable knowing our modest donation is supporting something much bigger; supporting Betsy and Misericordia."
Sharon Coughlin & Dave McEntee

"Hallerans had a wonderful time! Good food, great music and friends! We plan on it again."
Jo and Tom Halleran
