Tango Swings a Donation for New Orleans

Share this article:

Women's relationship magazine Tango announced that it will donate a portion of its advertising dollars from its November/December issue to the New Orleans Habitat Musicians' Village, a division of Habitat for Humanity.

Singer Harry Connick Jr. and his wife, Jill Goodacre, inspired the initiative. Mr. Connick has pledged proceeds from his new song, "All These People," to the New Orleans project.

Tango will provide a full-page advertisement in the issue promoting Mr. Connick's forthcoming New Orleans big band album, "Oh My Nola" and his charity initiative.

For each advertiser placing a full-page ad in the November/December issue, Tango will donate a percentage of the gross advertising dollars in the advertiser's name to Habitat.

In turn, the advertisers will be featured within a Tango sponsored page as well as on Tango's Web site at www.tangomag.com.

Tango readers also will be invited to contribute to the project via the Web site.

Mr. Connick and jazz musician Branford Marsalis conceived the New Orlean's Musicians' Village, which consists of 81 Habitat-constructed homes for displaced New Orleans musicians.

A full, firsthand account on the Musician's Village and Habitat for Humanity will be featured in DM News' Oct. 2 issue.
