Final Simms Concert Collects Cash, Groceries for Food Bank

August 27, 2019

The final performance of the 2019 Simms Summer Concert Series may have lasted one night, but the concert will live on in the form of a big boost for the Comox Valley Food Bank.

An estimated 1,400 people attended the My Generation Woodstock tribute concert at Simms Millennium Park.

Concert-goers contributed approximately 1,200 pounds of food, plus $2,264.10 to the Comox Valley Food Bank – nearly double last year’s cash donation total.

To all of the concert-goers, organizers, volunteers, sponsors, sound technicians and performers for the 2019 season: thanks for coming together and making this season such a success.

The Simms Summer Concert Series is co-sponsored by the Comox Valley Record, The Goat 98.9 FM Comox Valley, and What’s On Digest Comox Valley.
