Juke box party continues

February 24, 2007

Albany - - The Annual Juke Box Saturday Night event took downtown Albany back into time Saturday night.

Music from the 50's, 60's and 70's filled the Municipal Auditorium as some members of the Coffee Alliance of the Arts performed for a cheering crowd.

The event is sponsored by the AT&T Telecom Pioneers, formerly known as the Bell South Pioneers.

The event raises money for charity.

"We have our main projects really focusing on education. We have what we call project connect. it's a web based computer for the 4th through the 7th grades and it teaches the child a lot of the skills on the computer like they are playing games and they're enjoying it," says coordinator Freda Dudley.

A car show was on display for supporters as they walked into the theatre. The AT&T Telecom Pioneers is a volunteer group of active and retired AT&T and BellSouth employees.
