In its 30th year, the Sham Jam is an annual event organized and hosted by Alaska Young Democrats to benefit a local Juneau charity. All proceeds from Sham Jam 30 ticket sales go directly to the charity chosen by a volunteer committee of organizers.  This year’s event raised $7,801. 

“This was the most successful Sham Jam ever, in fundraising and fun.  I am proud to be part of an event that welcomes all and benefits a fantastic group like The Canvas, which is such a valuable asset to the community of Juneau,” said Senator Johnny Ellis (D-Anchorage). 

This is the 3rd year the event benefited The Canvas Arts Center. A division of REACH, the Canvas provides studio, pottery, and gallery facilities for the Juneau arts community with the goal of providing a supportive environment that fosters creativity and inclusion of adults with disabilities through shared art experiences and exhibitions.
