The Bobby Ramirez Foundation is dedicated to children's charities, helping the homeless, providing music performances, workshops, as well as donating instruments, and music arrangements to underserved schools.
Some goals include: Establish a music arts leadership faith-based institute serving homeless, disadvantaged and abused children; To inspire and empower one million (1,000,000) young people, women and families to become leaders; Establish the Jazz Museum of Florida (Jazzonian) somewhere in South Florida.
For many years as a performing artist (saxophonist, flautist, guitarist, percussionist, composer, arranger, bandleader, writer, educator, and event/entertainment producer), making a positive impact on people's lives through music and the arts has been a guiding principle in Bobby's life.
A visionary, an innovator, and a gifted creative conceptual thought leader, Bobby's artistic endeavors have had a significant impact on audiences worldwide, provided opportunity to many wonderful musicians and artists, as well as helping to define the Florida Jazz sound.
While Ramirez keeps a busy schedule of performances, he has donated his time and talent to many local South Florida charities through the Bobby Ramirez Foundation.
As an event producer, he has created innovative interactive Latin entertainment Show productions such as RITMO!PALOOZA® for special events, as well as Florida's only theatrical Latin dance Show production RITMO!® AZUCAR. Others include RITMO! FUNHOUSE, RUMBACOPA.
In 2009, Mr. Ramirez founded a non-profit educational cultural arts museum initiative called JAZZONIAN and Young Jazz Leaders initiative which established a scholarship fund for gifted students of the Jazz artform. He is also Executive Director of the South Florida Jazz Summit.
In 2011, a point of high achievement for Bobby was helping to establish the Jazz concert series at the Arts Garage in Delray Beach, Florida.
