Event description


Greatness Hides In The Shadows

An undiscovered band. An underestimated homeless person. Tonight we come out of the shadows.

Important Update:

This is an event within our fully operational homeless center. It's a great opportunity to meet some homeless people. They are truly inspirational. But because of this we ask that this be an alcohol free event as we require our homeless residents to be alcohol and drug free. Nonalcoholic drinks and snacks will be provided.


The event is going to be on Wednesday, June 14. It's going to be from 8:00pm to 11:00pm.

This is going to be a SUPER fun event that you aren't going to want to miss.

Our band line up is becoming amazing!

Thank you to all participating vendors for your donations!

We will offer snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.

This is becoming a real shindig.

This is an event where you just make a donation and come on down. A suggested donation is $10. But if you're broke we totally get it. We're homeless after all. Just donate a buck or something.

Also, if you are a member of The Homeless Charity you get in totally free. You can become a member by clicking here.

We know there are a lot of great bands in Akron that don't get a lot of exposure. Just like there are a lot of great homeless people that no one gives a shit about. So this event is all about showing Akron the awesomeness that exists in the shadows.

Well known bands can lift up lesser known bands. Well off people can lift up less well off people.

Together, we can help move everyone out of the shadows.

Please come. It will be fun!
