Hear the soul capturing voice of Diana Drew in harmony with the band Jazzamatazz featuring the masterful music of Don Vickery on drums, John Johnson on sax, Ron Johnston on Bass, Ted Roberts on guitar, and Frank Wright on vibes.

An inspiring evening of great jazz music in honour of volunteers and volunteering across Canada. In 2002 Care Unlimited was founded to say thank you to the invisible heroes who helped Don and Diana Drew through a life changing event.

In March 2008 Newbridge Mortgage learned of the Care Unlimited Program and stepped up to help this wonderful program grow and become all that it could be.
