Why: There's a new force in the local nonprofit world: Funding America Through Entertainment, or FATE. Its emerging dedication to "rock 'n' roll philanthropy" brings together businesses and entertainers to support food banks and drives. The organization's first show will feature bluegrass favorites Town Mountain and Sanctum Sully to benefit MANNA FoodBank. Organized by former MANNA communications director Josh Stack, FATE combines Stack's dedication to food security and his experience in the music industry.
Sanctum Sully (pictured) and Town Mountain are inspired by this new opportunity to encourage altruism in our region. “Asheville is all about a sense of community and collaboration,” says Town Mountain’s Jesse Langlais. "We’re definitely excited to be a part of an event that’s going to help so many of our neighbors in need.” Isis Restaurant and Music Hall will host the event and sponsors include Sierra Nevada, Leslie and Associates, Asheville.com and Pisgah Brewery.
Be a part of FATE's initial effort while supporting one of Asheville's most established food banks with an evening of bluegrass, beer and good cheer.
