Passion Party #570 - It Feels Good To Do Good


On Thursday, November 10th, 2016 PATH Ventures hosted their 11th Annual Holiday Jazz Revue, an unforgettable evening of dinner, music, and fun at the classic Catalina Bar and Grill in Hollywood, CA. I was the featured entertainment with my all-star band of L.A. studio artists (Gina Saputo, Diana Zaslove Kahn, Robert Kyle, Nolan Shaheed, Lyman Medeiros and Kevin Winard).

With the help of a sold-out crowd, plus generous corporate sponsors including City National Bank, over $54,000 was donated to directly support affordable housing developments across Southern California.

There are over 45,000 people living on the streets of Los Angeles County on any given night. They are women with children, people struggling with serious health issues, war veterans, seniors, emancipated foster youth, and families who lost everything because of the recession. PATH Ventures’ housing models aim to prevent and end homelessness by integrating supportive services, community development and permanent housing for people in need. 

I am so honored to be a catalyst for this event, and I am so proud of my band for giving their time and energy and creating amazing music that evening.  I have friends that have spent time living on the street, and I know the feeling of being one paycheck away from being evicted.  This is the least I can do to give back to the community that I have lived in for 40 years.  Thank you all for your support and love
