Metroplex to Raise Money for Mammograms Through Jazz

Special to the HHES

Join the Metroplex Foundation for Jazzin’ for the Cure, featuring Althea Rene, on Saturday, Oct. 7, at 6 p.m. at the Killeen Special Events Center.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at

Jazzin’ for the Cure is part of the Foundation’s month-long observance of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  All proceeds from the event will be used to provide free mammograms for women in the community who are uninsured.

Rene began her musical journey at the tender age four. A native of Detroit, Michigan, she studied classical music while attending Howard University in Washington D.C. and later gained further musical inspiration from the accomplishments of Yusef Lateef, Ian Anderson, and her father, one of Motown’s original Funk Brothers, Dezie McCullers. Today, she is regarded as a “master of her craft” and one of the world’s most exciting solo improvisational flutists.
