On April 18th, the first BLUE Ridge Bowl was held at Lockn’ Farm in Arrington featuring the Tedeshi Trucks Band.  Funding America Through Entertainment (FATE) made another donation to help buy food for our clients. Executive Director and Founder, Josh Stack presented Pantry, Vice-President, Marian Dixon, a check for $1,000 to help purchase food for our clients.  Josh has a soft spot in his heart for our Pantry as he has worked with food pantries in the past and knows the need.  He is originally from just north of Charlottesville.  He is working on another donation to help us later in the year when the Lockn’ Festival returns to Oak Ridge Estate and the Lockn’ Farm for their third year.
