THE STORY:

The Grand wrote -

We realize that not everyone will be able to attend our concert, so we created this fundraiser to give everyone an opportunity to donate for a great cause. With $1 providing 7 meals, we can truly make a difference in the hungry community!  Make sure to check out all of our sponsorship levels below! 

In Two Weeks Foundation will match funds raised by The Grand Beauty Spa's "Kids Helping Kids Thru Music" Charity Concert to benefit Feeding America Tampa Bay's Backpack Program. So any amount you donate gets DOUBLED...pretty exciting! Last concert, this match made it possible to purchase a 15-passenger van for Everyday Blessings. 

After touring and visiting the food bank right here in Tampa Bay, Steven and the kids’ decision was made that Feeding America Tampa Bay’s Backpack Program is who they wanted to support for this year’s “Kids Helping Kids thru Music” concert. We could not believe the facts they gave to us, for example: many "at-risk" students won't eat between Friday lunch and Monday breakfast and as many as 250,000 kids go hungry in Tampa Bay. The goal for feeding Tampa Bay's hungry children is to help children grow, learn, and thrive so that they can have a better chance at a successful future.

Feeding America Tampa Bay has adopted a multi-prong approach to addressing the needs of childhood hunger. The strategy focuses on reaching our local children where they are, and at times when they are most in need of food relief. Through Feeding America Tampa Bay’s Backpack Program, thousands of children receive bags filled with shelf stable, nutritious food at school to take home for weekends and school vacations.

We have compiled the top Junior Musicians and Performers like: Steven Sargeant - Pianist -  Founder of "Kids Helping Kids Thru Music", Tatiana Melendez - First Place World Ballet Competition, Seth Alderman - Singer, Special Performance Guests Mike DiRubbo - NYC Jazz Saxophonist / Recording Artist and 2013 & 2014 Downbeat Magazine Critics Poll "Rising Star Alto Saxophone Nominee," Emi Stefanov - Legendary Broadway Pianist.

If you truly have a love for the arts and want to show your support, please help us spread the news.   This Valentines Day, you can choose to indulge in chocolate, flowers or gifts or help us feed our children right here in Tampa Bay/St. Petersburg/Clearwater...because no one should go hungry.

Check out our sponsorship levels!  The “In Two Weeks Foundation” will match all donations! *If you are interested in a sponsorship, please contact Joyce Endaya at 941-724-0961 with all questions and CC payment.
