Annual Rent Party

This year marks the fourth annual Rent Party to support the new Lighthouse who serves the homeless and those living in poverty in Southeast Michigan. The Rent Party tradition dates back to the 1920s as they offered a creative solution to families facing eviction while also playing a major role in the development of jazz and blues music. Hosting this event, Lighthouse board member Paddy Lynch graciously opens his recently renovated home at the historic Stanley Kresge estate in the Arden Park-East Boston Edison Historic District of Detroit. The night will feature special pre-party Arden Park estate tours for sponsors, three stages of jazz with top local performers, a strolling dinner, and an open bar. To date, The Rent Party has raised $150,000 to help individuals and families experiencing homelessness in the region. For more information about tickets or sponsorship, visit
