The Boss is back, and he is doing his part to help the hungry.
Bruce Springsteen has donated four tickets to his concert on April 30 in Charlottesville to an auction to benefit the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, an organization that serves over 129,000 needy people every year in the Shenandoah Valley and Central Virginia.
The food bank is also holding a virtual food drive before and after Springsteen’s appearance at Charlottesville’s John Paul Jones Arena, and donations can be made at www.brafb.org between April 14 and May 3.
Feeding the hungry is a cause Springsteen takes seriously, and he has been a long-term supporter of World Hunger Year's Artists Against Hunger and Poverty program, an initiative that brings performers together to support hunger relief organizations across North America.
Anyone interested in taking part in the auction can visit www.brafb.org or www.charityfolks.com/bruce.
