St. Cloud Virtual Concert Raises $7,000 for Area Food Shelf
Country cover band Mason Dixon Line is doing what they can to keep spirits high during this pandemic, and they did just that during a live virtual concert this week.
The band partnered with Pioneer Place On Fifth, Bitstream Productions, and Olde Brick House to put on the show via YouTube on Tuesday, May 5th as a fundraiser for Catholic Charities Emergency Food Shelf. With the COVID-19 pandemic happening, the food shelf was in desperate need, and the community really came through to help raise over $7000 during this concert event.
Catholic Charities said their buying power with that money is 3-to-1, so in reality this $7000 turns into almost $21,000 for the organization. All the money raised during this show stays right here in Central Minnesota to help families in need.
I caught parts of the concert as I was doing things around the house. It was fun to hear a full live band again, concerts and shows have been one of the biggest things I have been missing during this Stay at Home Order. The way the production was put on with multiple camera angles and views made it feel like I was actually at the show. It was a feeling that was greatly appreciated.
If you missed the show but still are looking to donate and help out at this time, you can do so on the Catholic Charities website.
