“Women Who Jam” is one of NABFEME Charlotte’s signature events and serves to highlight female music artists in an entertaining and supportive atmosphere. This year the “Women Who Jam” concert will be held June 24, 2009 at Utopia Soundstage in Charlotte’s University area.
To celebrate the essence of “Women Who Jam” NABFEME Charlotte will honor three women who truly jam—media personalities Chirl Girl, Consuella and Ife Moore. Celebrated Poet and Spoken Word Artist Bluz will serve as the evening’s host and Master of Ceremonies.
Not only will the concert provide a platform for these artists to showcase their talents, a portion of proceeds earned will go toward Amped 4-A-Cure, a new initiative providing support to cancer research through the universal language of music. NABFEME Charlotte has a strong tradition of supporting community based initiatives and charitable causes.
Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the concert will begin at 8:00 p.m. Utopia is located at 10210 Berkeley Place Drive in Charlotte. Tickets are $15.00 at the door. For more information, contact Jameka Whitten at 704.965.3297 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

About Amped 4-A-Cure
Amped 4-A-Cure’s mission is simple: to raise funds to support cancer research through the universal language of music. Some of the ways planned to raise funds is through mini concerts to be held in cities nationwide; partnering with existing concert series, music inspired events, and select live music venues to make all of their events official “Amped 4-A-Cure” events to raise funds and awareness; a major concert in December featuring both major recording artists and independents as a finale for their 2009 Million Dollar Campaign; and sales of compilation CDs. Donations and proceeds generated from fundraising efforts go towards Amped-4-A-Cure’s 2009 beneficiary, The American Association for Cancer Research. To learn more, visit www.amped4acure.org
