South Oakland Shelter (SOS) Rent Party

July 1, 2019


The newly merged South Oakland Shelter and Lighthouse of Oakland County presented the annual Rent Party to raise funds for SOS’s vital housing and rental assistance programs. The party was held at the former Kresge estate in Detroit's Arden Park-East Boston Edison District, and was graciously hosted by current homeowner Paddy Lynch. The evening featured live jazz and blues, food and drinks, and VIP tours of the 10,000 square-foot Kresge Mansion, as well as tours of the neighboring Fred Fisher Mansion. Approximately 250 supporters attended the event, which raised $54,000.
