The East Van Summer Jam is a main fundraising event organized by non-profit organization, The Music Tree. EVSJ fosters community growth by bringing people together to celebrate East Vancouver arts and culture, while dedicating 100% of profits to sustainability projects and music programs for at-risk youth. By committing 50 % of the proceeds to partner organizations in Kenya and Uganda we strive to foster an international network of community building.
