Concerts generate food for Share
Wednesday, September 19, 2012
Ridgefield — Willie Nelson wrote the country classic "Crazy," but the word "Hungry" fits the song seamlessly, too. So it's nice to report that two recent concerts at the Sleep Country Amphitheater — Willie Nelson & Family on Sept. 6, and 311 & Slightly Stoopid on Sept. 4 — fought hunger by generating donations for Share, which operates homeless shelters and food programs in Clark County. "Share Food for Tickets" offered tickets to concertgoers who donated 10 pounds of food in reusable grocery bags; more than 3,000 pounds of food and $970 in cash donations came in.
