MOSCOW, Idaho – April 1, 2014 – The Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival is pleased to announce the 2014 Button Program winners.

David Hall, of Moscow, Idaho, was the grand prize winner. He received two round-trip tickets to any Alaska Airlines destination of his choice.

Second prize winner Cheryl Tribble is a Troy, Idaho resident who "does a lot of walking" and is very excited to get on her new bike from Rolling Hills Bicycles and Jamis.

The third prize goes to University of Idaho student Sheila Briggs, a sophomore in chemical engineering, who will be enjoying dinner and a night's accommodations courtesy of The Coeur d'Alene Resort.

During the 2014 Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, the Button Program expanded its reach to include more business from the area.

"We see the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival involving people from throughout the quad-cities -- we have volunteers from Pullman, and WSU, as well as Lewiston and Clarkston – so we are really excited to see the local businesses get involved, too,” said Steven Remington, executive director for the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival. “They're really embracing the Palouse as a region, and I think that's going to be really important to us all as we move forward."

The button provides festival-goers and community members with admission to selected high-demand workshops, along with significant discounts at 36 local businesses throughout Moscow and Pullman. Businesses participating in the button program this year included Rolling Hills Bikes, Baskin Robbins, BookPeople, One World Café, JAMMS Frozen Yogurt, Maurices, Atom Heart Music, Brused Books, Fireside Grille, Licks Unlimited and many more.

All proceeds from the button sales benefit the festival’s Young Artist Concerts.
