Big & Rich will be headlining a benefit concert for Maine charity Feed the County on August 20th.
For the past eight years, Feed the County has been a campaign spearheaded by Aroostook Savings and Loan and WAGM-TV8 to promote hunger awareness in northern Maine. Feed the County accepts non-perishable food items and assists with the purchase of food on behalf of Catholic Charities for 24 food pantries. Aroostook Savings and Loan President John Swanberg said, “Every dollar above the cost to put on the show will be going to Feed the County. With gas and heating oil prices approaching $4 per gallon, people are hurting financially. Having a benefit concert is an excellent way for people to enjoy some awesome music and still give to a great cause. Feed the County Summerfest concert currently has three nationally recognized performers to headline with advance ticket price just under $50, making it a real value.” Swanberg went on to say, “Since 2011 is Aroostook Savings and Loan’s anniversary, the organization wanted to do something unique and meaningful to celebrate 75 years of service to Aroostook County. This was a great way to give back to our community we have grown with all these years.”
