On October 15th, Union Station is hosting its 16th annual Evening for the Station—“a night of comedy to demonstrate that Homelessness is No Laughing Matter!” Join others at the ArcLight Pasadena as comedians like Cameron Esposito, Ron Funches, and Matt Peters light up the stage with laughter, fun, and a nod towards Union Station’s mission: “To help men, women and children rebuild their lives, and end homelessness.”
Union Station opened in 1973 after a group of local volunteers opened the space for homeless men in Pasadena. Today, it’s grown to include serving homeless women, children, and families—with shelters, day-service programs, apartments, and a Family Center. In 2014, “Union Station partner[ed] with United way and LAHSA to become the lead homeless service agency in the San Gabriel Valley,” writes its website.
So, come support all that Union Station does, Saturday, October 15th at its annual Evening for the Station. Show is from 6:30pm – 9:30pm. Tickets are $40.
