The United Way of Adams County (UWAC) is hosting a Facebook livestream featuring local musicians.
The “Listen Up for Good” concert event will begin at 6 p.m. on May 22.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, UWAC has had to cancel its largest fundraiser of the year, the “Give It Up for Good” rummage sale held at Gettysburg College on Memorial Day weekend.
“UWAC is seeking local musicians who would like to share their time and talents to help United Way and promote community unity during this challenging time,” said Vickie Corbett, UWAC’s executive director.
Musicians are being asked to submit one or two videos.
Music from a variety of genres is being included in the concert. Groups that have committed to participated include the steel drum band Island Fusion, hip hop artist DurtE, as well as solo performances from Thomas Senseney, Wayne Beck, Marshall Stone, Devon Cayro, Brian Colgan, Robert Leveille Sr, April Jeannette Howard, P.J. Groft, and Dustin Muller.
If you would like to be part of this important event, please contact Chris Bunty, UWAC’s Resource Development and Marketing Associate, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Messages may also be sent to Bunty through UWAC’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
Submissions should be received no later than May 15.
More details are also available on the agency’s website, www.uwadams.org.
UWAC has been supporting the Adams County community for 73 years focusing on education, financial stability and income. According to Corbett “All funds raised help people right here in your community. Examples of projects funded in our community include free income tax assistance, the annual school backpack program, food drives which assist area food banks and our Ready to Learn initiatives which prepare pre-schoolers for kindergarten.
