Inner City Health Center is preparing for their 10th Jazzed fundraiser, featuring Hazel Miller and Chris Daniels, on Friday, Oct. 22. Denver7 is proud to once again partner with Inner City Health Center on this event which will be hosted by anchor Katie LaSalle and KOSI's Murphy Houston.

Miller, a longtime patient of ICHC’s medical and dental clinics, founded the event back in 2010. The jazz-great wanted to do something creative to inspire others to support the organization she credits with saving her life. Since the event’s inception, she and her band have provided the music and have recruited other musicians to join them.

Jazzed is Inner City Health Center’s annual fundraiser, in which they strive to have fun, tell their story and raise funds to offset the funding shortfall between the cost of services provided and income from patients, who pay on a sliding scale, via Medicaid and other support programs.

This year, Jazzed will take place at the PPA Event Center, 2105 Decatur St. There will be an exciting silent auction, a variety of finger foods, and beverages. Masks are required, and guests should be ready to dance the night away.
