NEWPORT — There’s nothing fun about not having enough food in your refrigerator or cupboard, but the organizers of Hungerfest know there’s no reason not to have a little fun while helping people get the food they need.
Hungerfest 2014 takes place this year at the East Side Restaurant in Newport on November 7, from 7:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
Located on the beautiful waterfront of Lake Memphremagog, Hungerfest at the East Side invites people to come and listen first to the talented acoustic performances of Wayne Warner, Joe Patrissi and Tod Pronto, take part in a 50-50 raffle and refreshments at the break, and then dance the night away to the 60’s classic rock of the 66 City Band.
There will be other prizes and perhaps a few surprises too.
All funds raised from ticket sales and the raffle will go directly to the Northeast Kingdom Community Action (NEKCA) Food Shelf.
The Orleans County Food Shelf feeds an average of 1266 people, both adults and children, every month. The Caledonia County Food Shelf feeds an average of 1246 children and adults every month. In addition to any cash raised, there will be a place for people to donate non-perishable food items as well at the event.
Dance and do good at the same time. Shimmy and share. Tickets are available at NEKCA, Right Wheels, Northpoint, East Side Restaurant Gift Shop, and NEKTV.
You may also call NEKCA at 334-7316 to have tickets held for you at the door.
