Singing for Dinner


When times are tough, rather than falling into a looking-out-for-No. 1 mindset, people in our community seem more willing than ever to lend a helping hand.

On Sunday, June 14, Guitars for Food will hold its inaugural caring-and-sharing event at Julia Davis Park in the Bandshell to benefit El-ADA, a “community action partnership” that is part of “America’s poverty fighting network.” The all-ages event is free and open to the public and features the stylings of local talented musicians such as Pinto Bennett, Nathan Jay Moody, Jupiter Farm Chronicles, Soul Serene and more.

With the live music comes a host of items up for auction from businesses like Sunset Music, Doyle’s, Dorsey Music, The Record Exchange, Gig's Music Company and Old Boise Guitar. Five guitars will be raffled off as well. Raffle tickets are only two bucks and you don’t have to be present to win. Although why wouldn’t you be? Sounds like an OK way to spend a Sunday.

Sunday, June 14, noon-6 p.m., FREE. Julia Davis Park, 700 S. Capitol Blvd. For more information, call Rick Schroeder at 208-863-8503.
