    Jasmine's Fire Safety Foundation Concert

    Florida Saturday - December 17, 2011     04:00 PM

    On December 17, 2011, join the friends and family of the beloved Jasmine Jahanshahi as they come together to celebrate the short but passionate life of a young woman who is known to have embodied the very definition of exquisite strength and beauty. After passing away in a fire-related accident in Paris while studying abroad on April 14, 2011, Jasmine's friends and family saw no other way to confront their grief than by starting a foundation in her honor. J.U.S.T.I.C.E, which is an acronym for "Jasmine's Universal Stand Towards Inferno Caution and Education" is a non-profit organization that aims to distribute educational resources and fire-safety tools to students all over the country in the hopes of helping others avoid similar tragedy. The event will be a celebration of life, love, beauty, art and music and will feature the divine spoken word of the 13th century Persian Poet, Rumi.
    The concert will also feature a fusion of traditional Persian music with more contemporary rhythms and sounds. This event, which combines both the lyrical and musical artistry of an old, yet profound culture, will be held not only to cherish the fleeting beauties of our everyday life, but also serve to represent our responsibility to preserve the delicateness of such treasures. This event is open to the public and Jasmine's friends and family encourage and welcome new faces to be part of this cultural experience. All proceeds and ticket sales will benefit jasmine's Foundation.
