WILTON, N.Y. -- Two local food charities got a big boost recently after Wilton resident Andy Schlesinger pulled off a fund-raising rock concert, according to a report in the Wilton Bulletin.
The first-ever Wilton Rocks for Food event, held at the Trackside Teen Center, raised $26,000 for the Wilton Interfaith Food Pantry and the Connecticut Food Bank, the Bulletin reported. The money was split evenly between the two entitites.
Schlesinger, a musician himself, gathered together local bands, graphic designers, sponsors, and volunteers for the Dec. 5 event, according to the story.
Schlesinger credits his wife, Kimberly Pearson, for the success of a pre-concert party that was part of the fundraising package.
