Musical benefit planned for Sunday to aid Daily Bread

On the afternoon of September 17, musical talent from around the community will come together at Anderson Memorial Presbyterian Church to raise money and awareness to benefit the Pulaski Daily Bread. This is the fifth year that Anderson Memorial has hosted the event, and beginning last year, the benefit was renamed the Jack Crawford-Anderson Memorial Pulaski Daily Bread Benefit.

Crawford, a longtime member and beloved musical talent at Anderson Memorial, died in December 2014. He was instrumental in organizing the previous three benefits and this is the second event to be presented since his death. He was an ardent and tireless supporter of the Pulaski Daily Bread and this is a fitting tribute to his legacy, talent, and generous nature.

This year, the organization had been fortunate enough to gather several individuals or groups who have volunteered to participate in the musical event to begin at 2 p.m. at Anderson Memorial located at 319 Franklin Ave. in Pulaski. As in past years, a “love offering” will be collected during the concert with all proceeds going to the Pulaski Daily Bread, Inc. If you cannot attend the event and would like to contribute to this important community mission, you may make donations by sending them to Anderson Memorial Presbyterian Church, P.O. Box 2349, Pulaski, Va. and designating them for the Pulaski Daily Bread. If you have a musical talent you would like to share at the event, please contact Jack Chaffin at 540-994-0244 by Friday, September 15.

Don’t miss the opportunity to support the fight against hunger in our community and enjoy great music and fellowship while honoring the memory of Jack Crawford.
