The cupcake auctions raised $2,000 which Marion delivered to Monroe Harding last week. Rockstar cupcakes with Facebook fundraiser plus Carols by Candlelight benefit concert for Foster kids is how Little River Band rolls.
The band is also running a Facebook fundraising campaign so people who can’t attend the December 12, 2017 concert can help that way.
About the concert
LRB and friends, special guests Sixwire, Stranger Friends (John Martin & Jamie Floyd,) and Andrea Zonn are lending their musical talents to present a holiday concert on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at Marathon Music Works in Nashville. Tickets for this benefit show can be purchased at Ticket Flyor directly from the Marathon Music Works website by clicking this link. Tickets range from $15-$75.
Little River Band has hosted Carols by Candlelight concerts in numerous cities for more than a decade. This particular event is being dubbed the 1st Annual Carols by Candlelight – Nashville, as it is the first time the band will bring the event to Music City. All proceeds from the concert will benefit Monroe Harding and their services for children and youth in foster care.
Monroe Harding had this to say about the upcoming event:
“We are thrilled that the Little River Band has chosen Monroe Harding as their community partner for such a special event,” said Sarah Brock, Monroe Harding’s Marketing & Community Relations Manager. “The holidays can be a particularly difficult time for children in foster care and we appreciate Little River Band, and all the artists, raising awareness for those in foster care and celebrating their spirit with beautiful music.”
Little River Band’s lead singer Wayne Nelson said, “Christmas should be a special time of year for kids and families. Sadly there are some forgotten kids that have neither. Monroe Harding has been caring for those kids for over a century. Let’s help them continue their great work!”
For more than 120 years, Monroe Harding has continually adapted to meet the needs of more than 16,000 children and youth in Tennessee who have been abused, abandoned or neglected. They provide services to children currently in foster care, and to those who have aged out and still need support and guidance toward independence. Find out more at www.monroeharding.org.
