The David Lynch Foundation will host an"An Historic Night of Jazz" benefit to raise money for free meditation instruction to inner city kids, veterans suffering from PTSD, low-income communities and women and girls who have been victims of violence and abuse. The event will be on Thursday, December 13th starting at 6:00PM at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Frederick P. Rose Theatre, featuring performances by jazz legends Wynton Marsalis, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Esperanza Spalding and Corinne Bailey Rae. This unprecedented gala event will be hosted ABC news anchor George Stephanopoulos and filmmaker David Lynch.

 
Highlights of the event include a conversation on the benefits for health of Transcendental Meditation among high-profile thought leaders, including cardiac surgeon and TV medical talk show host Dr. Mehmet Oz and financier and philanthropist Ray Dalio. During the festivities, Mr. Dalio and his wife, Barbara, will be honored with the David Lynch Foundation's "Unbounded Generosity Award" for 2012, and Dr. Oz and his wife, Lisa, will be honored with the Foundation's "Perfect Health Award" for 2012.
 
Proceeds from the event will go towards teaching the Transcendental Meditation technique to thousands of inner-city youth, veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, and women and girls who have been victims of violence and abuse. Over the past seven years, the David Lynch Foundation has provided scholarships to more than 250,000 at-risk adults and children to meditate.
 
The David Lynch Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, was established in 2005 to fund the implementation of scientifically proven stress-reducing modalities including Transcendental Meditation, for at-risk populations such as underserved inner-city students; veterans with PTSD and their families; women and girls who have been victims of violence, rape, and abuse, American Indians suffering from diabetes and high suicide rates; homeless adults and teens participating in reentry programs; and incarcerated adults and juveniles.
