The members of The Work always look forward to the event and according to band's Charles Hedgepath, Christmas Jam has "become an instantly recognizable annual event that each year, each jam has outdone the last. Fans look forward to the event year round and it's an added fundraising bonus for our charity of choice. This gives the events roots within the community that each year I believe get stronger."
Fellow band member Craig Sorrels agrees, "The Christmas Jam is quickly becoming one of the biggest events of the year in Greenville for music. And is great for the music scene here in general. You will be pressed hard to find another event all year that brings in so many world class musicians into one building for one performance all together and do it all for a good cause. It means fellowship, and an opportunity to give back to a community that continues to support us over the years."
In its previous 8 years of operation, The Work’s Christmas Jam has raised $40,000 for local charities.
