The Marshall Tucker Band performed to a sold out crowd for the fourth Concerts For A Cause
The fourth in a series of fundraising concerts, Concerts For A Cause raised $79,051 for Builders Care, the philanthropic arm of the Northeast Florida Builders Association (NEFBA), which provides low-cost and no-cost construction services to the elderly, disabled, and other nonprofits in Northeast Florida. The sold out event at Tringali Barn at Heritage Farms welcomed Southern rock icons, The Marshall Tucker Band, with special guest Channing Wilson, on Saturday, April 9th.
“Last year, our first Concerts For A Cause raised $34,000 for Investing in Kinds (INK!), our second brought in $72,000 for Alpha-Omega Miracle Home, and our third event raised just over $73,000 for St. Augustine Youth Services (SAYS),” explained Chris Shee, owner of Tringali Barn at Heritage Farms and Founder and CEO of MasterCraft Builder Group. “Bringing in a classic act like The Marshall Tucker Band, and the consistent and unwavering support of our community, helped us raise more than $79,000 this time around for Builders Care. Donating over $250,000 to local charities by hosting four concerts is incredibly exciting and humbling.”
Shee says that the next Concerts For A Cause event will be held in November 2022. He plans on hosting the fundraising concerts twice a year and offering even more well-known and popular national touring acts. Each concert will benefit a different local nonprofit organization. People can sign up for email notifications about upcoming events at Tringali Barn.
“With this donation, Builders Care will be able to provide services to those who have limited financial means, but are in the most need throughout North Florida,” said Krissy Barkas, Executive Director of NEFBA. “We have a large demand for ramps to provide those confined to a wheelchair accessibility to exit their home safely. We also have a great need for new roofs and roof repairs due to Florida’s climate. This donation will be a blessing to so many of our neighbors in need and I cannot wait to get out in the community to make a difference.”
