The 14th Annual Starlight Jazz Serenade


For thirteen years, Hands for Hope has been blessed to have the top smooth jazz artists perform for us at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in the No Ho Music & Arts District. In March of 2014, we will once again host the best kept secret concert which includes at least four stellar smooth jazz performances, a delicious VIP reception, a silent auction with instruments autographed by the artists and we may even add a surprise performance by the Hands for Hope band. Don’t miss the 14th Annual Starlight Jazz Serenade! Tell a friend! Bring a group of ten and get a free ticket, they go on sale in November.

Thank you to some of our 2013 sponsors Budget Rent-a-Car, US Bank, No More Poverty and Daniels Jewelers. If you’d like to be a sponsor for our 2014 event, call 818 763-HOPE (4673).

The Starlight Jazz Serenade is an annual fundraiser for the non-profit 501c(3) Hands for Hope (H4H ). This highly anticipated event is one of the reasons why H4H has been able to help underprivileged children and single parents receive the kind of loving support that it takes to raise and nurture the hopes, dreams and abilities of a child through FREE after school programs and single parent support groups and events.

When our kids walk into the doors of H4H, we help them with homework, build their self-esteem with activities in the Arts (music lessons, dance, painting, photography etc.), provide them with a healthy snack, and even teach them how to effectively manage money. Our program is unique because it’s geared toward assisting single parents with children aged 8-21 where after school programs are scarce. H4H provides an alternative for our future leaders and resources for their parents.

The Starlight Jazz Serenade is held every year in the No Ho Music & Arts District and H4H brings together some of the brightest stars in smooth jazz with the community’s elite to shine in one evening of great entertainment. The concert attracts attendee’s not only from the San Fernando Valley, but also from the city of Los Angeles and the surrounding counties.

This event is unique due to its’ all-star line-up and its’ diverse crowd. This is one night where those who love great music can come together for a good cause. It also enhances the “New” No Ho Music & Arts District by fostering the arts and attracting attendees from all over Southern California to experience all of the new development/attractions in the area.

Featuring the sounds and genius of leading Jazz Artists and award winning musicians.
