House of Blues to Offer a Free Thanksgiving Dinner for Those in Need


Back in 1992, the original House of Blues in Cambridge, Mass. began a tradition of serving the homeless and needy on Thanksgiving. House of Blues here in Cleveland has carried on that tradition for the past decade.

Once again this year, it will offer a full Thanksgiving buffet dinner to those in need from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.

House of Blues employees, friends, family and vendors will provide the food.

The venue aims to feed about 400 people, and you just need to be in need (homeless, poor, alone) to attend.

In addition, the gospel group Nu Covenant will perform.
