UNION GAP, Wash. -- Dozens of people came out to Sunday's Jazz B-Q fundraiser for Rod's House.

The event was held at the 20-acre Spring Creek Homestead in Union Gap.

There was live music performed by KCJ Jazz Company, food, raffle prizes and several items for auction.

All of the money raised from the event will go to help Rod's House, a Yakima nonprofit organization that helps around 700 homeless teens each year in Yakima County.

"Money that has been raised today will go to every day functions at Rod's House. To help support our staff, to help support the monthly bills that come in, and help us do a better job with the youth that we have," said Steve Bernard, operations manager for Rod's House.

Organizers say more than 150 people attended the event.

The first annual Jazz B-Q event was sponsored on by the Yakima Valley Social Media Coffee Club.
