Steven Tyler recently made the news in an awesome way when he announced the creation of Janie’s House named after the hit Aerosmith song “Janie’s Got A Gun”. Janie’s House was created, as a women’s shelter for victims of abuse and Steven will be taking this venture a huge step further.
Steven has just announced the Janie’s Fund Gala, which will happen on the 28th of January at Red Studios in Hollywood, California. What’s even more exciting is just who’s set to host the event! The gala will be co-hosted by Alice Cooper, Elton John, and Joe Walsh! Steven Tyler recently spoke with Music-News.com and said this…
“The time has arrived to share what we’ve done and what we’re striving for. This inaugural gala is designed to bring my friends and family together so we can continue to provide uplifting and needed support for Janie’s Fund. This gala is more than a night out, it’s a break on through to the other side for these girls whose lives have been stunted. It’s an opportunity to learn of the valuable work we will be doing to get them there. It’s time to bring the awareness out of the darkness and into the light for these girls, for all to see.”
“You can reach the heights of your passion, go all across the entire world and meet people from all walks of life, but the look on these girls’ faces when they know that they’ve found their safe haven, especially after being put through the pain of abuse and neglect. Now, they’re being taken care of by the best of the best in experiential therapy and 24/7 caregiving. Every five minutes, someone comes in and checks in on them and they love it, because they know someone is not coming in to abuse. This event is a testament to the important work happening at Janie’s House.”
