How great is the Rochester Opera House?! Not only is ROH bringing some rocking '80s and '90s music to Rochester this weekend; they are also holding a Community Food Drive!
If you have not heard a band play at the House this would be a great weekend to do so! Generation X tribute bands The Stone Temple Posers (Stone Temple Pilots) and Yellow LedVedder (Pearl Jam) perform tonight followed by the ultimate '80s rock tribute Boyz Gone Wild with special guest Revenge (non make-up Kiss tribute) on Friday night.
Then Pack the House Community Food Drive on Saturday where the goal is to fill all 750 seats in the historic theater with a bag of food or funds to benefit four local hunger relief organizations: SHARE Fund Food Pantry, Gather, Grace Community Church Food Pantry, & End 68 Hours of Hunger.
All food and monetary donations will be divided equally among these Rochester organizations, helping them continue their incredible work and outreach in our own back yard through food pantries, mobile markets, home delivery, and more.
Top Ten Wanted items: Baked Bean, Soup (Not Condensed), Canned Corn, Stew/Chili, Canned Meat (Chicken, Tuna, etc.), Jelly, Canned Pasta Meals, Juice, Granola Bars & Crackers, Cereal, and Monetary Donations - This helps buy needed items when they run out. Pack the House will be held October 9 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
Now get out there and enjoy some local music!
