Cleveland attorneys "Jam for Justice" at House of Blues
Cleveland’s House of Blues has hosted rock legends like B.B. King, Blue Oyster Cult, and Parliament Funkadelic – but on Wednesday, June 19th, it will welcome Northeast Ohio attorneys and judges for a unique night of local entertainment! “Jam for Justice” is The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland’s annual summer fundraiser. For the past 11 years, “Jam” has featured musicians from the legal profession, but in 2019, doctors, accountants, and other Cleveland-area professionals are joining the lineup to support Legal Aid and show how our entire community works together to #ExtendJustice. This year’s concert features seven bands and one DJ performing a variety of musical styles, from folk-rock to disco and Motown, plus original material and covers of your favorite classic rock anthems.
“Jam for Justice” raises funds to support Legal Aid’s work to secure shelter, safety and economic security for low-income clients. Sponsors are supportive of Legal Aid’s mission and include: Accellis Technology Group, WKYC, BakerHostetler, Benesch, Friedlander, Coplan & Aronoff, Frantz Ward, Giffen & Kaminski, Taft/, Thompson Hine, and Wickens Herzer Panza, as well more Cleveland-area law firms and vendors.
To celebrate its 114th anniversary, Legal Aid is hosting a special 50/50 raffle and selling 114 tickets for $114 each. A winner will be drawn at random the morning after the concert. Prize money will reach $6,500 if all tickets are sold!
Legal Aid helps individuals and families facing a variety of legal issues including evictions; domestic violence; challenges related to employment or education; and barriers to accessing public benefits, income, or assets. The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland is the only nonprofit dedicated to addressing the civil legal needs of Northeast Ohio’s poor, marginalized, and disenfranchised. Legal Aid often tips the scale between shelter and homelessness, safety and danger, and economic security and poverty.
