This story has been updated with a revised amount raised!
Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Bowmanville, the two December 16, 2018 Concerts to Feed the Need in Durham surpassed all expectations.  Thanks to the many local musicians who generously volunteered their time and talent, to the outstanding efforts of many Rotarians, especially Joe Solway and Eli Brooks, to the Bowmanville High School students and staff for their support, and to emcees Carolyn Ellis from KX96 and local councillor Ron Hooper, the concerts raised just shy of $13,150 for Feed the Need in Durham.  Given its unique resources and support from companies and other organizations, Feed the Need will be able to purchase up to $92,000 worth of groceries with the funds raised!
