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, at last count the event has raised $13,150 for Feed the Need in Durham.  Feed the Need can use these funds to provide $92,050 worth of food to its 63 member agencies throughout the region.  That's because for every $1 donated Feed the Need in Durham can collect, store, and distribute $7 worth of food.
