FULTON, NY â€“ Beatles tribute band, Magical Mystery Tour will bring its entertaining stage show to Fulton as it performs during the third annual â€œPlaying For Poverty, A Food Aid Concert for Oswego County.â€
Hosted by a coalition of human service agencies, â€œPlaying For Povertyâ€ will be held at Bull Head Point on Sept. 11 from 3 to 9 p.m.
â€œWeâ€™ve planned a full day of music and fun to help raise awareness of hunger and poverty in Oswego County,â€ said Heather Robinson of OCOâ€™s Street Outreach Services. â€œThis will be a fun event for the whole family. There will be raffles for some great prizes throughout the day, food and refreshments will be available from the Fulton Lions Club, and plenty of live music with performances by Those Guys, Rubber Ducky Revenge and Magical Mystery Tour.â€
While there is no charge for the event, those attending are asked to bring a donation of a canned food item or two to help support local food pantries.
â€œDuring the event we will be collecting donations of non-perishable foods along with any monetary donations people would like to make,â€ Robinson said. â€œAll donations and proceeds raised will be used to benefit food pantries throughout Oswego County.â€
In addition to the live music, representatives from the host agencies, which includes ARISE, Bridges out of Poverty, Catholic Charities of Oswego County, County of Oswego Advocates Challenging Homelessness, the Council of Churches, Fulton Family YMCA, Oswego County Opportunities, Rural and Migrant Ministries and AmeriCorps will also be on hand to meet the public, educate them about their efforts to address the issues of hunger and poverty, and encourage the community to become involved in helping to alleviate these problems in Oswego County.
