Concert to benefit local pantries

TUPPER LAKE-There will be a Musicians Unite for Food benefit concert from noon until 6 p.m. at the Holy Ghost Academy in Tupper Lake on Saturday, April 9.

This is the third in a series of concerts to raise funds for local food pantries. The first two of these concerts were held in Vermontville and in Saranac Lake. Over $3,500 was raised in Saranac Lake and truckloads of food from both concerts were delivered to food pantries.

There is no cost for the show, and audience members are asked to bring either money or Non-perishable food to donate directly to a food pantry representative. Money goes a lot further than food, due to purchasing power at the regional food bank.

Please make tax deductable donations payable to: Tupper Lake Food Pantry, 179 Demars Blvd # 2 Tupper Lake, NY 12986-1306. The pantry number is 359-3080.

The music will range from folk and bluegrass to classic rock. A popular Tupper Lake youth band will also play. Something for everyone, stay as long or as short a time as you'd like. There will be door prizes and a 50/50 raffle, will all proceeds going directly to the food panty.

The expected line-up for this show includes Adirondack singer songwriter Jamie Savage, Paul Smith's College professor and musician Celia Evans and more.
