Rock and Wrap It Up!, the non-profit organization that brings unused food backstage at concerts, sporting games and other large-scale events to those in need, will host its next Humanitarian Award concert New York’s BB King Blues Club on December 2. New York businessman Russell Rosenthal, who served on Rock and Wrap It Up! Advisory Board, will receive this year’s Humanitarian Award. According to the organization, “Through his passion, leadership and contacts the Federal Food Donation Act was passed in the House and Senate. The Act encourages federal building to donate the food to the poor and keep it out of land fill. It was signed into law in 2008. Through the implementation of the Act millions are being fed who would not otherwise have access to food without its passage.”
Rising “hip-rock” star Tina Brown will perform at the event, which will also feature live and silent auctions that include a number of items that should interest Relix and Jambands.com readers. Please contact 1-877-691-FOOD to purchase tickets to the event.
