Tacoma, WA (PRWEB) April 15, 2013
On April 18th, Ignite-U will host a concert at the Great American Casino in Lakewood, WA with popular local Unloaded Band on stage. All proceeds will go to the Emergency Food Network of Pierce County.
Founders of Ignite-U, Kieran and Sherri Murry, brainstormed the idea to have regular concert events to raise funds for local community causes and connect the people in the community while making a difference to local businesses in the Pacific Northwest. Kieran and Sherri Murry say the supportive local businesses found on IgniteU365.com make events such as these possible.
The Unloaded Band is a popular local band of the Pacific NW. Band members include: Marcelo deVera on Guitar & Vocals, Rick Robinson on Bass Guitar & Vocals and Howard Ouchi is on Drums. Concert goers will enjoy a variety of music including: Modern Classic and Southern Rock, R&B, Funk and Country.
Emergency Food Network provides more than 15.1 million pounds of healthy, nutritious food annually at no cost to over 67 food banks, hot meal sites and shelters for distribution to low-income families and individuals.
Their Mission: The mission of the Emergency Food Network (EFN) is “to provide a reliable food supply so that no person in Pierce County goes hungry.”
In 2012, programs in the Emergency Food Network accommodated 1,381,602 total visits. EFN spent nearly $1.45 per visit to assure that each time a community member walked into a food program with nothing, they walked out with enough food for 11 meals.
With an administrative overhead of under 4%, the Emergency Food Network distributes $12 worth of food for every $1 they receive.
