Brad Paisley fans give 900 pounds of food for hungry veterans
Fans of country music superstar Brad Paisley brought more than their tickets, friends and sing-a-long voices with them to Paisley’s recent concert in Saratoga Springs; they also brought food and cash donations for Feed Our Vets, a nonprofit organization dedicated to eradicating hunger among U.S. veterans and their families.
It was the second year in a row that award-winning singer/songwriter Paisley invited Feed Our Vets to set up its trailer during his sold-out concert at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. The venue hosted a food collection contest as part of the event, with the winner earning front-row seats to the concert and a meet-and-greet with Paisley. John and Jill Bailey of Albany were the winners, bringing in a hefty 346 pounds of groceries. The concert netted a total of 900 pounds of food and $400 in donations for Feed Our Vets.
