It’s the holiday season, and there are plenty of opportunities to include the less fortunate in your flurry of giving. Coalition for the Homeless will host the seventh annual “Give a Jam for Homelessness” tomorrow at the Clifton Center, 2117 Payne St., from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
The event features live music, a silent auction, and soups and stews from Louisville chefs at Fork & Barrel, The Exchange, Crave Cafe, Against The Grain Brewery, The Irish Rover, Harvest, Jack Fry’s, Shady Lane Cafe, Uptown Cafe, Volare, and Chili’s. Thirteen bands are listed to play including Louisville favorites like Ben Sollee, Appalatin, Tyrone Cotton and others you can view on the Coalition event page.
According to their web site, “100% of the proceeds [from the event] go to supporting the Coalition’s collaborative Rx: Housing Initiatives program, specifically our most recent initiative to end homelessness among young adults by 2020.” The program works to house those most likely to die while homeless, and the web site further states that hundreds of thousands of dollars are saved in emergency room visits and incarceration costs.
Tickets can be purchased online for $25 or at the door for $30 and include $10 in food and drink tickets. The site also states that the event sold out last year, so you might want to get your tickets in advance.
