A Concert to Feed the Hungry — Wednesday, September 12 at 7:00pm at St. Ann and The Holy Trinity Church
Dan Blake, Andrea Spirn’s husband, sends along info about a concert he’s organizing:
Musicians often travel the world, but rarely have the chance to celebrate the universal human desire to help those in need. Joined by bassist/vocalist Esperanza Spalding, pianist Leo Genovese, percussionist Richie Barshay and singer/songwriter Margaret Glaspy, saxophonist Dan Blake will present an evening of music to raise money and awareness for the 3rd annual NYC “Walk to Feed the Hungry”, a 3.5 mile walk event produced by Buddhist Global Relief (BGR).
Funds raised form the “Concert to Feed the Hungry” will provide grants to BGR’s partner organizations. These organizations give vital food aid and promote greater food productivity in the communities where they operate, both locally and worldwide. One organization is the Brooklyn-based charity, “Added Value”, which helps Brooklyn youth to positively engage with their community through the operation of a socially responsible urban farming experience.
