Widespread Panic wants to give more than a performance at this year’s Riverbend Festival. In collaboration with Widespread Panic and Friends of the Festival, the Chattanooga Area Food Bank hopes to raise awareness about childhood hunger during Riverbend.
Childhood hunger affects one out of every four children in the area. The CAFB has three ways to get involved in the fight against childhood hunger.
Every dollar donated to the CAFB helps to provide four meals. During Riverbend, concert goers and community members can donate $10 to provide 40 meals by texting FEED40 to 80888. Additionally, an anonymous donor pledged to match all text donations received on Saturday up to $25,000.
Anyone that donates $20 during the Widespread Panic Sweepstakes on the CAFB Donate Now page before Friday at noon will be entered to win four Coca-Cola Hospitality tickets to the Widespread Panic show on Saturday. Sweepstakes includes: festival wristbands, up-close access to the grassy area directly in front of Coca-Cola barge stage and private bar. Every $20 donation receives one entry to sweepstakes. There is no limit to the number of entries. Winner will be contacted directly by CAFB staff following sweepstakes conclusion.
