Submitted. On August 24 from 6 to 8PM, the Envision Concert in the Park Series is proud to present J.D. Miner at Mill Lake Park (Kariton Art Gallery Stage, 2387 Ware Street) in Abbotsford.
J.D. Miner is a Canadian acoustic trio currently consisting of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Darryl Klassen, fiddle and mandolin wizard Chad Joiner, and tub-thumpin’ bassist Joe Worst. Their music is an eclectic collection of original jazzy tunes, ballads about real (and unreal) people, and a liberal dose of Old Time banjo and fiddle tunes.
Concert goers are also invited to take part in Envision Financial’s Full Cupboard program by bringing non-perishable food or cash donations to Mill Lake Park (Kariton Art Gallery Stage, 2387 Ware Street) in Abbotsford.
“Through our new program, The Full Cupboard, Envision Financial is helping to reduce hunger in our community” says Town Centre branch manager Kelly Khakh. “Join us on August 24 at Mill Lake Park and bring along a non-perishable food or cash donation. All proceeds will stay in Abbotsford supporting our local food bank.”
So far, over 2,600 pounds of food and $25,500 have been collected for The Full Cupboard via your donations – thank you!
“The great thing about The Full Cupboard is that all food and funds collected in your community will stay in your community,” says Susan Byrom, manager of community investment at Envision Financial. “That’s a great way to ensure every penny counts!”
