THE Left Bank’s Casino Royale event will bring all that jazz to raise funds for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis.

Shahirah Bogdanich, known as ShahirahJazz, and her jazz trio will perform for the evening.

She first heard about the event when asked to perform in 2016.

“The night was a huge success and I was honoured to be asked to provide live entertainment for the Casino Royale events in 2017 and 2018,” she said.

“Involving myself and my business in service to the community and for charity is part of my business philosophy.

“Performing for this event is an opportunity to practice my work ethic and to lead by example for the aspiring youth at my performing arts school in Claremont and for my vocal students.”

ShahirahJazz said she hoped people enjoyed the music that she would share.

“We are working on a new fusion of house rhythms and jazz atmospheres with rich sounds yet easy listening,” she said.

Conquer Cystic Fibrosis representative Samantha Smith said she hoped the event would continue.

“Last year we raised approximately $2000, so hopefully we’ll increase that number this year,” she said.

“The money will go towards cystic fibrosis research, to find better treatments and ultimately a cure.”
