Charity – Steel City Jazz Festival | Birmingham, AL | June 1 – 3




A portion of every ticket sale at the 2017 Steel City Jazz Festival will benefit the Ronald McDonald Charities of Alabama, an organization which cares for more than 40 families every night, providing services from medical treatment to family housing.

In 2016, Empowerment, Inc. and the Steel City Jazz Festival donated $5,000 to Ronald McDonald Charities of Alabama.

“We talk a lot about family, because we know family matters,” said Cedric Allen, president of Empowerment Inc., a 501c3 non-profit agency that manages Steel City Jazz Festival.

“I’ve witnessed the amazing impact Ronald McDonald Charities of Alabama has had on the lives of Birmingham families, and we want to support that effort. ”

Empowerment, Inc. was founded in 1996 by Mr. Allen. The organization has supported Alabama communities, from creating computer labs to providing job assistance for Hurricane Katrina evacuees. It’s goal then – and now – is simple: Raise the economic, educational and social levels of Birmingham, a community suffering from substantial unemployment and limited career opportunities.

The 2017 Steel City Jazz Festival is scheduled for June 2-3 at Birmingham’s Linn Park. To learn more about Ronald McDonald Charities of Alabama, visit
