After many weeks of excitement and hand wringing, RFAR is thrilled to finally announce our Summer 2007 tour!
Beginning August 7 in Camden, NJ, the staff of RFAR will be joining the Dave Matthews Band for the duration of the tour! 32 shows and over 700,000 concertgoers, all given an easy opportunity to help the hungry in their own communities. We will be accepting non-perishable items and dollar donations to be contributed locally at every tour stop. You’ll also be able to take a stand to encourage legislators to better address the needs of food assistance recipients by signing a postcard urging elected officials to repair the damaged USDA 2007 Farm Bill, just by visiting the RFAR table.
Here’s the part you’ve been waiting for: WE NEED YOU! RFAR will be in need of volunteers to support our road staff for every show on the tour! If you are interested, please send your name, phone number, show preference, and a little something about WHY you want to volunteer for RFAR. Please note: Chosen volunteers will receive a working pass, which entitles you to lawn viewing only. We expect all volunteers to be volunteers first, concertgoers second. You’ll be able to enjoy the show, but after the food drive has been wrapped up! Please send your email BY August 1st to firstname.lastname@example.org , please be sure to write DMB Volunteer: (Venue Name) in the subject line. We ask your patience and understanding in this process–we expect a lot of email!
TOUR DATES: http://tourdates.davematthewsband.com/
Please check our “currently being renovated” website in the coming week as we update tour dates and pictures from Spring Tour! While you’re there, be sure to check out our Tour Sponsors page and give them some love. Speaking of sponsorship, did you know that you can support the work of RFAR by donating on our webpage? Any amount helps us stay on the road, providing education and action around hunger relief. If you itemize your taxes and require a tax exempt receipt, please indicate that with your donation. All receipts will be mailed by RFAR in late fall, after the tour is finished and evaluated. Please understand that with a small staff entirely engaged on the road, we will be unable to mail receipts until after this tour is wrapped and evaluated. We appreciate your patience!
Stay tuned for another email specifically about the Food Drives and the raffle goodies we’ve lined up for one lucky winner a night on the tour!!
