UNITED WAY of ADAMS COUNTY VIRTUAL CONCERT, Gettysburg, PA, May 1, 2020

United Way of Adams County (UWAC) is hosting a virtual concert on Facebook featuring local artists of various genres. The Listen Up for Good concert event will take place on Facebook at 6 P.M. on May 22nd.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, UWAC has had to cancel its largest fundraiser of the year, The Give It Up For Good rummage sale held at Gettysburg College on Memorial Day weekend.

UWAC is seeking local musical artist who would like to share their time and talents to help United Way and promote community unity during this challenging time,” said Vickie Corbett, UWAC’s executive director.

Musicians are being asked to submit one or two videos that can be cover music or original music they wrote. Music from a variety of genres is being included in the concert. Steel drum band Island Fusion, hip hop artist DurtE, with solo performances from Thomas Senseney, Wayne Beck, Marshall Stone, Devon Cayro, Brian Colgan, Robert Leveille Sr, April Jeannette Howard, PJ Groft, Dustin Muller, have all agreed to participate.

Corbett says interested groups should contact Chris Bunty, UWAC’s resource development and marketing associate for more information at cbunty@uwadams.org. Messages may also be sent to Bunty through UWAC’s Facebook and Instagram pages. Submissions should be received no later than May 15th. More details are also available on the agency’s website, www.uwadams.org.

UWAC has been supporting the Adams County community for 73 years focusing on education, financial stability and income. According to Corbett “All funds raised help people right here in your community. Examples of projects funded in our community include free income tax assistance, the annual school backpack program, food drives which assist area food banks and our Ready to Learn initiatives which prepare pre-schoolers for kindergarten.”
