August 01, 2014, Grants Pass, Oregon - The Blues Bash is on Friday, August 8 from 7PM - 9PM at Morrtons Sports Pizza Bar at 980 N Phoenix Rd #105 in Medford, Oregon. The concert is FREE with the donation of any non-perishable food item to be donated to support Medford Food Project (medfordfoodproject.com). The fun rockin’, blues music duo Wild Pack and their guests will be performing. Wild Pack is a blues duo that combines old school blues classics with a heavy blues rock sound along with original songs and humor.
You can help feed the hungry and listen to great blues music at The Blues Bash concert series being produced by Blues Against Hunger, a food drive to benefit Southern Oregon food banks and California Association of Food Banks.
“This event is being done at a great time because food banks are desperate for food,“ said John Pack, Director, Blues Against Hunger. "In tough economic times, everyone needs hope and occasional help, especially those living in poverty. Statistically, donations are much lower over the summer months forcing many families and elderly to turn to food banks and donations for help. Throughout the summer, the donations will be able feed the poor and those in need."
“We feel this concert series and the food drives are a great way to benefit the community two-fold. We are helping to provide much needed food for families while giving the local communities a fun and inexpensive way to enjoy quality entertainment close to home,“ said Rachel Pack, president of Blues Against Hunger.
In an effort to help during this summer season Blues Against Hunger will be collecting as much food as possible, but the donation don’t need to stop there. On-going support is needed. This initiative is part of Blues Against Hunger’s community outreach campaign, bringing people together to address human needs and transform lives on the West Coast.
