(WXYZ) — The South Oakland Shelter and "Lighthouse" are throwing a fundraiser June 1st to help people in need. They're selling tickets right now for an event called "The Rent Party." For your donation, you can come and enjoy lots of great jazz and fabulous food.

Organizers say the party is "in the spirit of the rent party tradition, which offered a DIY solution for families facing eviction in the 1920's while playing a major role in the historic development of jazz and blues music."

The South Oakland Shelter says: "The Rent Party event will be held on Saturday, June 1st 2019 at the former Stanley Kresge estate in Detroit. It's located in the Arden Park-East Boston Edison Historic District. It will feature three stages of jazz curated by the top local music venues of the genre, with a delicious strolling dinner, open bar, and special VIP hours featuring private estate tours"

VIP Hours | Estate Tours: are set for 5pm - 7pm
General Admission to the event is 7pm - 11pm
