Benefit show is Jan. 27
POMFRET — “The Red Hot Banjo Wizard,” Howie Bursen joined by Sally Rogers, Martin Grosswendt, Bennett and Lorraine Hammond return at 7 p.m. Jan. 27 to the Vanilla Bean Café for their 32nd year performing to benefit the Access Food Pantries: Site-Based and Mobile. Admission is $25. For info:  https://accessagency.org/.
Howie Bursen, who has coordinated and performed this event for 32 years, will also be joined by Sally Rogers, Martin Grosswendt  with Bennett Hammond, and Lorraine Hammond.
Bursen said, “We hold this event to raise money for our Northeast Connecticut Emergency Food pantries at Access. Access helps feed our neighbors who don’t have enough money to buy food for themselves - or their children … the Food pantries can make the difference between hunger and health.”
All proceeds from this concert will be used to buy food from the Connecticut Food Bank. Each $25 donated to Access by purchasing a ticket will buy more than $250 worth of food from the CT Food Bank for distribution to those in need throughout northeast CT. Last year the concert raised more than $4,000.
