Many well-known Sarasota local bands are coming together to raise awareness and donations in a virtual concert to support Mayors’ Feed the Hungry. “Music That Moves You” will be held virtually on Tuesday, October 27, from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., at HERE.
Music That Moves You
Scott Biehler, Executive Director of Mayors’ Feed the Hungry, says, “COVID19 continues to put a strain on Mayors’ Feed the Hungry pantries. Local supplies continue to decrease as an increase in consumer food assistance climbs exponentially. Community support of this concert will go a long way to helping us help those in need.”
A number of local musicians will be performing at this benefit. They include many local favorites, with one or two more possible surprises in the works: Kettle of Fish, Ship of Fools, Mike Sales, The Wandering Hours, Shaun Hopper, Colleen Orender, Justin Laymand, Melanie Massell, Joe Bruno, MB Banned and Banjoe Steve, Ship of Fools, Eirinn Abu, Steve Arvey, and Leah Suarez.
Sponsors include Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Tampa Bay Bucs, Kristina Skepton/Keller Williams Real Estate, Junior League of Sarasota, Wilde Productions, and the Mendell Foundation.
“We are issuing a call to action to our communities, businesses, and community organizations to lend a helping hand once more,” says Joel Swallow, Chairman of Mayors’ Feed the Hungry. “Please send a contribution today and help make sure that no child or adult in Sarasota and Manatee counties will go hungry for this holiday season.”
