WILLIAMSBURG — The Three Jolly Coachmen’s Coffee House donated $1,500 to the Williamsburg chapter of Faith in Action on March 27.

It was the largest donation the concert series has given to date to a local charity it has partnered with since the series began in September of 2022.

The March 15 concert, a “jazz jam,” featured local jazz group The Tony Mata Trio and nine “jammers” who sat in for a few numbers.

“This is the first time the Coffee House has tried the ‘jazz jam’ format, and it proved to be a huge hit with local jazz fans,” said Three Jolly Coachmen member Greg Davy.  “A big thank you to Tony Mata and his trio members Glenn Lavender and Kevin Gaines for making it such a success.”

Faith In Action helps senior adults age safely in their homes by providing transportation and other volunteer support services, including transportation to medical appointments, shopping, caregiver support, assistance with household chores, one-on-one visits, daily well-check calls, friendly phone visits, and light yard work.

To date, the Three Jolly Coachmen’s Coffee House concert series has sold out nine of its 10 concerts and donated more than $10,000 to local charities, including the Heritage Humane Society, Grove Christian Outreach Center, the USO and House of Mercy.

The next TJC Coffee House concert will feature the original Three Jolly Coachmen with Peter Budnikas on Friday, May 10. To reserve seats, send an inquiry to TJCCoffeeHouse@gmail.com.
