In 2015 Joseph Calato, Jr. was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. He missed weeks of work and incurred large expenses in his 6 months oftreatment at Roswell Park. His loss of work and medical expenses threw him into debt. Thankfully, he is in remission.
In March of 2017, his daughter suffered a traumatic brain injury in a
car accident. In her 3 months in ECMC and ongoing rehab her father was, and is by her side. This benefit is to support the family of Joseph Calato through their medical expenses and loss of income.
The music of Monk, Tony Williams, Freddie Hubbard, Clifford Brown and more will be provided by Alec Dube, Harry Graser. Mark Harris and Joe Calato. Original jazz paintings and jazz artist clocks will be
auctioned. There will be a 50/50 raffle to support the cause.
