The Alaska Young Democrats and the Canvas will host their 33rd annual charity fundraiser, the Sham Jam at 8 p.m. Saturday in the Canvas art studio on Seward Street.
Sham Jam is a long-standing charity event started by retired Senator Johnny Ellis to offer residents of Juneau, legislators, and staff the opportunity to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and give back to the community.
This year’s theme is “Alaska. Wild. Life.” Attendees are encouraged to dress up in their Alaska best. There will be a live DJ, open bar, dancing, photo booth and prizes awarded to the best Alaska-themed costumes. Tickets are $25 at the door and attendees must be 21 or older.
Tickets are available for purchase in advance at the Alaska State Capitol in Room 11.
Proceeds from Sham Jam will go to the Canvas Art Studio, which provides studio, pottery, and gallery facilities for the Juneau arts community. Their goal is to foster creativity and inclusion of adults with disabilities through shared art experiences and exhibitions.
