Coalition for the Homeless says
It’s time for the best fundraiser of the holiday season: it’s the Clifton Center's fifth annual Give-A-Jam to End Homelessness supporting the Coalition for the Homeless! This year, Give-A-Jam will be held on Thursday, December 17, from 6-10:30pm at the Clifton Center. $20 admission includes 10 food and drink for the evening. Tickets go up to $25 at the door, so buy yours now: http://cliftoncenter.tix.com/Event.aspx?EventCode=803774!

Give-A-Jam brings together 10 talented local bands, soups and stews crafted by seven of Louisville’s best restaurants, and auction items donated by skilled local artists and businesses. Above all, it is a fun community event where every Louisvillian can do something to end homelessness.

We have over 30 musicians performing in 10 bands (all of whom are donating their time to perform for this great cause). Here is the tentative line-up, which is subject to change:

6:00 John Gage
6:25 Will King (of Tony and the Tan Lines and Sixtyfourwest - Bill & Aaron)
6:50 Justin Paul Lewis
7:15 Tyrone Cotton Band
7:40 Small Time Napoleon
8:05 Cheyenne Mize
8:30 Joan Shelley and Nathan Salsburg
9:05 Bonnie Prince Billy
9:30 Bibelhauser Brothers with Dave Howard (of Relic and the 23 string band) and Steve Cooley (of Hog Operation)
10:00 Appalatin

Restaurants who are donating soup include Jack Fry's, Havana Rumba Cuban Restaurant Louisville, Cafe Lou Lou, Volare Ristorante, Lilly's Bistro, Shady Lane Cafe, and The Cheddar Box Cafe, with bread from Panera!

Because everything is donated, 100% of the proceeds go to supporting the Coalition’s collaborative initiatives to maintain an end for veteran homelessness and to end chronic homelessness in Louisville–which, by the way, have been remarkably successful: chronic homelessness has dropped by 50% since 2011, and nearly every single identified homeless veteran has been provided with resources and housing this year.

See you all soon!
