22nd Annual Gingerbread & Jazz Gala

2013 logo no text at allNow in its 22nd year, the Gingerbread & Jazz Gala continues to impress jazz fans and party-goers alike with extraordinary jazz music (this year’s headliners are Phat Daddy and the Phat Horn Doctors), signature cocktails, elegant buffets, delightful desserts and dancing in a unique venue – The Historic Day Nursery.

The annual crowd-pleasing Gingerbread Masterpiece Challenge is a two-hour live “battle of the chefs” competition requiring participants to build original and creative gingerbread houses. The spectacular houses are offered at auction immediately after a judging committee announces the grand prizewinner.

Early Connections Learning Centers (formerly Child Nursery Centers) was founded in 1897 to serve children of limited income and working families in the Pikes Peak region. All proceeds from the gala provide direct support for year-round early care and education programs for children ages infant to 14 years.
