Indigo Girls’ concert helps feed thousands
What a fantastic weekend! If you were there Friday, November 22nd or Saturday November 23rd, you felt the love. The Indigo Girls rocked out for our cause, clearly sharing our passion to end hunger. They--and YOU their incredible fans--made this year’s benefit concert a record-breaker, raising enough funds to provide 18,000 individuals with groceries for a week!
We cannot thank you enough for helping spread so much love. As Amy and Emily exhort in the Power of Two, “if we leave a legacy, it’s that we’ve loved each other well.” We are truly grateful for the overwhelming support. This year included a special treat. After performing Friday night, the Indigo Girls decided to join our Live Auction by offering a chance to sing on stage with them! Check out Susan Ellis, auction winner, showing off her mad singing skills on Closer to Fine.
Two lucky winners took home autographed guitars from our live auction. Dan and Jimmy, we appreciate your passion for the Indigo Girls and Beyond Hunger. Rock on!
