Local bands jam for a great cause!
The 2nd annual “Give-A-Jam to End Homelessness” will be held on Thursday, December 20th beginning at 6:00pm at the Clifton Center. The evening will showcase many of Louisville’s most talented artists including John Gage, Justin Lewis, Hog Operation, Scott Carney, Andrea Davidson, Tyrone Cotton, Beady, Joan Shelley & Anna Krippenstapel, Mike Tracy & Friends, Stephen Mattingly, Will King, and several unannounced guests. The event will also feature a sumptuous array of soups and stews from local restaurants including The Irish Rover, Proof on Main, Taco Punk, and The Silver Dollar. Each of the participating restaurants and musicians are donating their time and talent, and the event will be staffed entirely by volunteers to ensure that all proceeds will go to benefit the Coalition for the Homeless. Guests can enjoy a cash bar and bid on a variety of silent auction items. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door, at cliftoncenter.org, or at Carmichael's Book Store, 2720 Frankfort Avenue. For more information call (502) 636-9550.
“Give-A-Jam” is the brainchild of John and Natalie Harris, the husband and wife team who are organizing the event along with the help of many friends and supporters. John is the Executive Director of the Clifton Center, and Natalie is the Executive Director of The Coalition for the Homeless.
Last year’s inaugural event raised $8,500 in support of the Coalition for the Homeless efforts, and this year’s goal is $10,000. All proceeds raised from the event will go specifically towards the Coalition’s Rx: Housing Program. The goal of the Rx: Housing campaign is to house the most vulnerable homeless persons on the streets of Metro Louisville.
