Philosophy of Hope III: Your Authentic Self

Throughout each day we are challenged to be our authentic selves. But what does this mean? Join us for a night of finding hope through our authentic journeys.

Philosophy of Hope III is an unforgettable concert that combines extraordinary musicians into one band that will use its collective voice to celebrate life’s ups and downs. Showcasing inspiring songs crafted by singer-songwriter-author Ken Baxter as well as new arrangements of memorable songs from the past, we will go on a musical journey that fills our hearts with three things that we all need, something to do; someone to love; something to hope for.

Join Ken Baxter, Molly Countermine, Richard Sleigh, Daryl Branford, Judson Mantz, Rene Witzke, and other noted musicians as they send a powerful message that the world just wants you to be you.

Find the courage to let your authentic self shine through Philosophy of Hope.

 

This event wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our Sponsors!  We are so grateful for their continued commitment to stepping up for mental health and well-being.

Become a sponsor of the 2021 show!

When we feel loved, secure, and confident with who we are, we can let our authentic self ‘shine brightly and boldly.’  It is our dream that young people grow their confidence to be true to themselves through their thoughts, words, and actions.

With the effects of the pandemic still impacting our daily lives, and the issues of social justice that we as a nation are facing, many Americans are feeling increased levels of stress and anxiety.  Through innovative programming, the Jana Marie Foundation continues to provide vital programs and resources to young people and caring adults in our community to help grow confidence, provide practical tools and techniques to overcome adversity, and educate about mental health and wellness.

On Tuesday, November 9, 2021 at 7pm, the Jana Marie Foundation will host its third annual Philosophy of Hope concert at the State Theatre to spread hope throughout our community.  This event will showcase inspiring songs crafted by singer-songwriter-author Ken Baxter as well as new arrangements of memorable songs from the past. This is not just a concert. It is a powerful show with a message: “Be Your Authentic Self.”

Through music and storytelling, Ken and other noted musicians such as Molly Countermine, Richard Sleigh, Judson Mantz, and Daryl Branford, will take us on an emotional, musical journey to help us connect with our authentic selves.  We know that staying true to who we are is vital for our happiness and mental well-being, but it can also feel incredibly difficult to do.

Today we are writing to ask you to join us on our journey of spreading mental health awareness by becoming a sponsor of the Philosophy of Hope III Concert. Your generous support will remind people that it is okay to reach out for help and to reach out to offer help. Together, we can create an environment full of understanding, acceptance, and appreciation for all.

We have a variety of different sponsorship options, which you will find attached to this letter. If you have any questions about Jana Marie Foundation or the Philosophy of Hope III Concert, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at marisa@janamariefoundation.org.
