Black Lives Matter Syracuse is raising money to take more than 300 children to see the movie The Black Panther. Organizers say its important children of color see the latest superhero movie from Marvel.

Organizer Rahzi Seals says inspiration for the event came from her five-year-old nephew, who loves the Avengers superheroes. 

The Rosamond Gifford Zoo is hoping visitors get in the spirit of their centennial celebration by supporting some of the animals’ native habitats.  Friends of the Zoo has launched a fundraising effort called “100 cents for 100 years” to conserve endangered species.  In exchange for a donation of a dollar or more, guests will receive a unique zoo wrist band.  Friends of the Zoo President Janet Agostini says they want to do greater good beyond our borders.

On April 25th at 6:30 p.m., WAER will present the annual Jazz and Wine fundraiser in partnership with the Community Folk Art Center. This year's event will feature the talented bassist and vocalist, Mimi Jones. Jones played in Syracuse last year as part of Tia Fuller's ensemble at WAER's Jazz Appreciation Month concert last year. This time around, Jones is showcasing her unique individual talents as a performer and composer.
