Mark Your Calendars for Sunday December 16!
I have now been in the mortgage business for 22 years, and have had quite a ride with the ups and downs of our business. But as anyone who has been in the business can tell you, real estate has been very good to many, many people in Los Angeles. That is why, once a year I like to give back and help some of the people that are not fortunate enough to have a home to lay their head at night.
Once a year I host a Jazz Party and Fundraiser at my favorite jazz club, The Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood. I put together a killer band and a great show including various guest vocalists, and we play our hearts out for PATH (People Assisting The Homeless) Ventures, a non-profit that builds permanent housing for people that have been homeless in Los Angeles.
This year the event is on Thursday, December 16. The doors open at 7:00 PM for dinner, and the music starts at 8:30. There are no long boring speeches. There is plenty of good food, drink and amazing music. My company, Mortgage Capital Partners, sponsors the music, so all the money we raise goes directly to PATH Ventures.
I could use your help, if you have a minute, especially if you live in the Los Angeles area:
1) Please consider buying a table at the show. A table for six costs $500, and includes a three course meal and the show (alcohol is extra). If you don’t have 6 people, you can buy a dinner/show ticket in advance for $100, and we will seat you with others. Please contact Emily at 310-996-1171 or email@example.com for this special package.
2) If you don’t want to come for dinner, you can still make show reservations for $25 per person ($15 for students). You can buy drinks or food when you get there, and while you are there you can make an additional donation to PATH ventures. For reservations, call Catalina Jazz Club (323) 466-2210.
3) If you can’t make the show at all, please consider sending a donation for any amount to PATH Ventures. If you send it before December 16, I can deliver it to the concert. Mail checks for PATH Ventures to attn: George Kahn, c/o 12400 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 900, Los Angeles, CA 90025
4) I can also send you a copy of the press release and a flyer, so you can spread the word.
Please see below for details. I hope to see you at the show – it will be the best holiday party of the season!
