Food concert drive today
Music maker Eddie Riffe has organized a music-inspired canned food drive for today at the Kyova Mall.
The 14th annual River Cities Harvest Canned Food Drive Concert will kick off at 9 a.m. with a pancake breakfast at Callihan’s American Pub and Grill. The breakfast continues until 10:30 a.m., with a cost of $5 for a short stack, sausage and a beverage, and all proceeds going to River Cities Harvest.
From 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., the music and collection of canned goods continues as Eddie and The Cougars, Roger Smith, Katie Owens, ER (Eric Daniels and Ron Hurn), Rob McNurlin, Tracy Ann Stanley and Tom and Brenden Wintz are scheduled to play.
The concert is Riffe’s way of giving back and raising awareness about River Cities Harvest, which has been serving food kitchens in 14 counties across the area since 1991.
Also, there will be a DVD signing from noon to 2 p.m. with former World Championship Wrestling star Bobby Blaze, who has recently penned a book, donating some of his proceeds to the cause.
