Peter Yarrow Performs at an Evening of Music and Meaningful Giving

Peter Yarrow

Award-winning artist and humanitarian Peter Yarrow will perform live at Temple Emanuel in Denver on Wednesday, December 16, 2015, at 7:00 pm. Yarrow is of the folk trio Peter, Paul & Mary and is famous for hits such as “Puff the Magic Dragon” and “Light One Candle.” This unique event is being proudly presented by Jewish National Fund (JNF) and the Arava Institute.

“JNF is excited to welcome Peter Yarrow to Denver for an evening of music and meaningful giving,” said Ron Werner, JNF Mountain States Board President. “Peter is an extraordinary entertainer with a big heart for philanthropy and human rights. We’re looking forward to listening to him perform and sharing with the community the great work of JNF and the forward thinking Arava Institute.”

JNF is proud to partner with organizations such as the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies, which promotes peace and sustenance. Arava Institute is a world-class teaching and research center in southern Israel that prepares Muslim, Christian, and Jewish students to cooperatively address the shared environmental challenges of the Middle East. Those challenges, including water, air quality, and energy, cannot be solved in the region unless neighbors work together effectively.

Since 2002, JNF has been an official partner of the Arava Institute. JNF raises funds for student scholarships as well as for a capital campaign to build the campus. Past support has funded the construction of dormitories, academic and research offices, and a new laboratory, and has provided $1 million for scholarships.

Tickets for this one-night-only event can be purchased at jnf.org/coconcert. VIP tickets are $180 and include access to an after party with Peter Yarrow and premier front row seating; Golden Circle Tickets are $72 and include reserved front row seats; and General Admission tickets are $36.
