Some Other Place is a non-profit organization that provides meals and emergency aid to the homeless and indigent.

Since 1968 Some Other Place has served the North Jefferson County area by providing emergency assistance to low/no income families who have faced emergency situations.

The Board of Directors created the event five years ago as a community-oriented way to raise benefits for Some Other Place, with the hope that it would become an annual event. In the past four years, each event has been attended by more than 4,000 people and raised more than $50,000.
