The Gainesville Woman's Club (GWC) is hosting a special concert featuring the University of Florida Jazz Band with trumpeter Scott Wilson Sunday, March 18 at 4 p.m. at the Gainesville Woman’s Club, located at 2809 W. University Ave. This event is a GWC signature project, which will benefit the community and the Gainesville Arts and Parks (GAP) Foundation, Inc. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be donated to the GAP Foundation for future park improvements at the Northeast 31st Avenue Park. The park is in need of substantial upgrades to its playground and tennis and basketball courts, as well as new features such as picnic pavilions and walking paths. Research shows that children benefit greatly from outdoor play and being in nature. Parks give children the opportunity to appreciate and interact with the natural world around them and to play outside.
