They were dressed to the nines and ready to hear the sounds of Jimmy Young and Passion, a Gainesville band, at the inaugural "An Evening of Jazz with the Visionaires." The nearly 130 men and women who attended the benefit held last Saturday at the Gainesville/Alachua County Senior Recreation Center, danced the night away, listened to music, mingled and had refreshments while also raising scholarship funds for students in Alachua County. Sponsored by the Visionaires Inc., a social and civic club in Gainesville, "An Evening of Jazz" was one of a series of activities in observance of the club's 75th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee Celebration.
