Last night, Kim Betts and Billy Rice, two of the performers who will be singing at the “Giving Back” event on September 13th at the Swordfish Grill and Tiki got together for some photos to promote the event.
Every Friday, hundreds of homeless kids leave school with little hope of having any food for the weekend. F.E.L.T., Feeding Empty Little Tummies is an organization that is helping to feed homeless children in Manatee County, one backpack at a time. During the school year, these kids are sent home on Friday with a backpack filled with nutritious food for the weekend. F.E.L.T. is based on the foundation of volunteer, donor-generated charity. All proceeds go directly to providing homeless children nutritious food while not in school.
Billy Rice, Twinkle, Kim Betts, Dana Lawrence, Greg Poulos and Tanya Mccormick are graciously giving their time to put on a concert to raise money for F.E.L.T. (scheduled to appear). Bob Slicker, GM of the Swordfish Grill and Tiki will be donating a portion of their proceeds to the charity. There will be some awesome silent auctions, great raffle gifts, a vacation giveaway, great food and drinks and more so everyone will have a chance to give back. The show will be produced by Laura Adams and presented by The Sarasota Post and Sande Caplin and Associates. Leo Binetti is the Musical Director for the event. Tim Chandler will be playing at the Happy Hour from 6-7. REMAX Alliance Group has signed on to be the main sponsor and Darwin Brewery will also be sponsoring the event.
