We wanted to publicly thank all of our volunteers and guests who showed up this past Saturday, August 18th for our first SUMMERSTOCK event! If you still haven’t caught wind about what SUMMERSTOCK is, you can read this post.

The forecast called for rain the entire week leading up to the event but Saturday ended up being warm, sunny and beautiful! Enjoy this 5-minute video from the event:[youtube=]

Our volunteers were simply amazing and represented a variety of local churches and community groups. Many came early and stayed late, working as a team to make sure the event was a success from beginning to end.

The band who joined us, The Dale Project, did a fantastic job and created a fun atmosphere for balloon tossing and face painting. We saw lots of guests enjoying the ice cream donated by Highland Park Market and the popcorn and cotton candy run by volunteers.

Families got to stock our shelves together and many people brought generous donations of food to help fill our shelves for these remaining Summer months.

In summary, this event was a blast and we are deeply grateful to every business, individual and family that supported, volunteered, and attended our event.

Enjoy the video and feel free to share it as much as you want!

We’ll also post it on Facebook.
