When music meets a cause incredible things can happen, join us tomorrow at LA Gives Back!
Around this time of year, I’m constantly looking for ways to give back. Whether it’s in volunteering or a cash donation, there are so many causes to choose from. Tomorrow IHEARTCOMIX is helping simplify the process for you by presenting LA Gives Back. This 18+, benefit show, will take place on Wednesday, December 21st from 9 pm to 2 am at UNION and 100% of proceeds will go towards benefiting the LA homeless. With the help of Brownies & Lemonade, Ham on Everything, Emo Nite, Space Yacht, Free Grilled Cheese, Late Night Laggers and Restless Nites you can experience 6 rooms of dancing and a stacked lineup for $25 while contributing to the homelessness cause.
We can’t disclose the lineup, but trust us when we tell you that it is going to be LIT!

Local Charities Being Supported:
This is an initiative from the Monday Night Mission, an organization operating on Skid Row´s streets feeding the homeless from Monday through Friday, all 52 weeks of the year. In a partnership between Monday Night Mission and the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission, our goal is to operate a mobile shower throughout Los Angeles. We will be collaborating with homeless outreach teams within the city and county of Los Angeles, the Veterans Affairs Administration, and other non-profits who offer homeless case management. This will not only offer the dignity of a shower, but also give direct referrals to housing, mental healthcare and veterans benefits as a means to a path out of homelessness. Join us and be part of an initiative that will build the capacity to better serve our community in a homeless condition.
