Music for Change, held November 1 at the Belleville Stage, was a resounding, foot stomping success! More than 125 folks came out on a rainy night to mingle with friends, enjoy the three great bands, bid generously on the silent auction and contribute to Pennies for Poverty. We raised more than $10,000. All proceeds from the event benefit individuals and families in need in the Greater Newburyport Area.
The evening was made possible, in part, by the generosity of our lead sponsor, The Institution for Savings, and our corporate sponsor, Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank. We thank them as well as all of our supporters, the musicians who donated their time, and the businesses and organizations who contributed to the silent auction.
