Cyndi Lauper played a show in Westbury, NY, on Wednesday, and asked fans to support a very special charity initiative.
Prior to the show, Cyndi requested that concertgoers brought food to benefit rock CAN roll, an organization that collaborates with rock concerts, schools, corporations, and private individuals to collect healthy & nutritious non-perishable food for distribution to local agencies and into the hands of children, seniors and families who live with hunger and in poverty.
“Food banks around the country are reporting difficulties in getting food donated and keeping up with the demand due to the current state of our economy,” she wrote on her website prior to the show. "So, they need our help and it is really simple for us to do something.
“We have partnered with Live Nation, the Westbury Theatre and Rock Can Roll to collect non-perishable food items at the show… So, please bring as much as you can to the concert. We will have volunteers and bins available for you to easily drop off your donation.”
Rock CAN roll is a fast quick and easy way to help those in need! Visit the website to see how you CAN support the organization. Lewis Black, Bret Michaels, Train, Gregg Allman, Crosby, Stills and Nash and Maroon 5 are just a few artists that have also teamed up with the organization! The rock CAN roll organization is always looking for new collaborators, volunteers, supporters and friends to help in this quest to beat hunger.
