Giving Hunger the Blues is putting on this event to raise funds for the Mayors’ Feed the Hungry Program:

It is a Gregg Allman band tribute with former members of the band, and special guest John McEuen.

It is billed as the First Annual Winter Social, featuring John McEuen, two-time Grammy winner and founding member of The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and an Allman Brothers Band Revival, featuring RJ Howson, Mike Kach, Pedro Aravelo, Pat McDonald, and special guests.

Giving Hunger The Blues & Jazz on the Bay is committed to creating awareness, resources and donations to address hunger in our community through the universal language of music.

Tickets are available for a donation of $30 in advance, and $35 at the door.

Seating is limited to 200.

Ticket donations include two complimentary beer or wine.

This is going to be a very special night of music!

A contribution to this program means your money goes to feed the hungry! The only administrative expenses are for the production of printed materials and mailing costs. All money collected stays in our communities and is used for food vouchers that are distributed throughout the year by local churches, civic groups and social services agencies. (See About Us for more information.)

Last year your generosity provided over 14,000 meals – over 35% went to children, over 16% went to the handicapped and over 15% went to the elderly – however more than 40,000 requests were left unfilled!

We already know the need this year will be even greater because of current economic conditions.

Even the smallest contribution – combined with others – will help feed the hungry.

As we launch our campaign this year, we are asking you all to lend a helping hand once more. Remember, every dollar counts – please feed as many as you can.
