A Fun Night

Thank you to everyone who attended the Bruce Springsteen Tribute Concert last night. The turnout was great and the best part was that we raised funds to help feed the hungry in our community - $2,574.87.

Here are a few snapshots from the event:

I took this photo before the start of the concert from the window of Kempton Hall where we serve The Wednesday Community Meal. At the event, The Very Reverend Bill Lupfer, who is the Dean of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral,  announced that it is estimated that more than 36,000 free meals will be served just this year alone through the church's Hunger Ministries. Besides the weekly community meal, this includes the annual Thanksgiving and Easter Meals and the daily distribution of food bags.
The stage was the porch of the cathedral. It was a warm and breezy evening and perfect for an outdoor concert. Thank you to all the musicians who donated their time and talent.
It took a lot of volunteers to pull off the large event including my daughter Eleanor (left) and niece Maya (right) who manned the poster table all night. My goddaughter GraceLin helped by keeping them awake and alert. Local poster artist Gary Houston designed and printed posters just for the event.
The view from the stage.

Casey Neill was the last musician to take the stage. The last song of night was "Thunder Road."
