The Jazz & Blues Revue Triumphs at Catalina Jazz Club : our annual PATH Ventures Holiday Fundraiser


Gig update!…On Wednesday, December 11th, PATH Ventures hosted their 8th Annual Holiday Jazz Revue, an unforgettable evening of dinner, music, and fun at the classic Catalina Bar and Grill. The event took place from 6:30-10:00 PM and featured Jazz Pianist and Composer, George Kahn, Courtney Lemmon, Gina Saputo and Crystal Starr with an all-star band of L.A. studio artists. Jazz vocalist Mark Winkler made a guest appearance, and Jazz legend Bubba Jackson from KJAZZ, returned once again as the MC.

Proceeds from the evening will help PATH Ventures raise critical funding to directly support affordable housing developments across Southern California.

Thanks to our generous sponsors and the sold-out crowd at Catalina's, we raised over $33,000 to help build housing for the homeless in Los Angeles.  In addition,  PATH Ventures connected with two major grant/sponsorships, bringing the grand total raised to $78,000!!! THANK YOU ALL!!!

There are over 51,000 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.

PATH Ventures, in partnership with for-profit and non-profit sponsors, has developed seven housing developments consisting of 385 permanent housing units and 120 transitional units. Our expertise extends across all stages of development, including acquisition, predevelopment, design, construction, financing lease-up and asset management. In addition, PATH Ventures has a strong social services program that we bring to all of our developments
