Benefit concert

A group of local bands came together to play in a benefit event to raise money for the local Sugar Grove Food Pantry. Saturday, Dec. 29. Thank you to the bands: Days of Old, Hi-Fidelity, Beyond the Illusion, Fallen out of Favor and Hearts Like Riots who preformed at the Sugar Grove Free Methodist Church gymnasium. The proceeds from the event all went to raise money to purchase food supplies for the local Sugar Grove Food Pantry. The food pantry supplies were used extensively during the holiday season and are in need of replenishment. The concert helped raise hundreds of dollars to get that started.
