Leo Downey is playing a house concert on Nov. 2 with Lori Bru

Leo Downey concert supports food bank

Leo Downey and the Golden Food Bank are teaming up to bring the town a house concert, and raise funds for the food bank at the same time.

Leo Downey and the Golden Food Bank are teaming up again this year to bring the community a house concert, and raise some funds for the food bank at the same time.

Brenda and John Managh are hosting the show at their home at 1756 Hwy 95 S., like they did the previous year. The event raised $870, and organizers are hoping to repeat that this year, especially with the food stores being particularly low.

This year there will also be a silent auction, with mainly “artsy” items, with the proceeds also going to the food bank.

Leo Downey will be joined by another local musician, Lori Bru, for the performance. The two toured together in California this past summer.

The concert is at the Managh residence on Saturday Nov. 2, at 7 p.m. Bring an appetizer and something to drink (with a designated driver), and enjoy the cozy, intimate setting.
