Songwriter Craig Wiseman presents the first-ever Music Row Rally to benefit food assistance needs in Nashville.
As we approach the 5-year anniversary of the annual Stars for Second Harvest benefit, songwriter Craig Wiseman is asking Nashville to take notice and help out those in need around them. The demand for emergency food assistance is up %35 and supplies are running short. Simply donating nonperishable food items or making a monetary gift goes a long way. $1 provides 4 meals.
On Friday September 25th (That’s THIS FRIDAY!!!!) Craig and the Big Loud Shirt gang, the Second Harvest staff, and a few special surprise guests will be stationed at the Row roundabout and the 17th St./Wedgewood intersection, during rush hours 4:00pm until 6:00pm collecting monetary and canned food donations from all of the cars driving by. Big donations will be rewarded with prizes such as tickets to the show, t-shirts or a sweaty kiss from Craig!
“We are very excited about adding Music Row Rally to our Stars For Second Harvest event,” exclaims Craig. “It allows us to get all of our music row friends involved and gives artists a chance to help out such a worthy cause, raising awareness for Second Harvest in a time when it is needed the most. ‘The Words Written In Red’ tell us compassion for the hungry is one of the most basic acts of love there is and there is so much love in this town,” continues Craig. “I know this will be great!”
Wiseman will also be the 5th annual Stars For Second Harvest benefit the following week on September 29, 2009 at 7:30pm at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. This concert features an unplugged acoustic style performance by some of Country Music’s brightest stars; Rodney Atkins, Phil Vassar and Heidi Newfield, to name a few. Thanks to presenting sponsor O’Charley’s, all of the proceeds will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee in their efforts to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in the Nashville community. Event tickets are on-sale now for $50 at secondharvestmidtn.org and $35 at ticketmaster.com.Country Music Photo Gallery
