Cafe @ The PALM featuring Jazz Group Fortune Vinson Cruse! September 5th - 6PM to 9PM. Tickets - $10.00
All native sons of Philadelphia, Fortune Vinson Cruse began their journey together in the mid 70's when Dennis Fortune, in search of a bass player, was introduced to Michael Cruse by mutual friend and saxophonist George Howard. This is where the seed of their long friendship and musical partnership took root. A few years later Fortune and Cruse were introduced to Pete Vinson, who sat in with them on several gigs before becoming a full time drummer at the end of his tour with Grover Washington Jr. Thus the legendary trio was born.


Our Mission:
To assist adults, 55 years of age and older, to maintain a healthy, satisfying quality of life by providing services and activities in a nurturing environment that enables them to function more independently in the community. The center is an advocate for unmet needs of senior citizens and a repository of information to assure them their rights, benefits and opportunities. The PALM is a gathering place where aging is celebrated every day.
