On Saturday, March 24th, 2012 about 400 people gathered on the lawn of Riverside Park in Olde Bonita Springs to support the CREW Land & Water Trust at our 5th annual benefit concert. The music line-up “was the best one yet” – with Wendy Webb‘s smooth vocals, The Wholetones funky upbeat folkcore fusion, and the grand finale with Kat Epple and the Katalyst Project. A classy touch was the dancing of Christar Damiano.
Between sets CREW Chairman of the Board, Bill Hammond, and CREW Executive Director, Brenda Brooks, shared a few stories about CREW and thanked all the concert sponsors, Trustees, volunteers, and those who attended. We also shared three short videos about CREW that were produced as part of our documentary package by WGCU-Public Media last year.
The silent auction was fabulous and Rotary of Bonita Springs provided drinks while CREW Trustes provided food for concert-goers. The people who attended were generous bidders at our silent auction as well as generous donors to our food/drink donation jug. Thank you to all who made this night so special.
