NORTHEAST BROADCASTING Triple A WXRV (92.5 THE RIVER)/BOSTON TODAY (10/9) announced THE STRUMBELLAS will headline the 16th annual RIVERFEAST CONCERT, scheduled for SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9th at the BLUE OCEAN MUSIC HALL in SALISBURY, MA. 

The event will feature a cocktail hour and a silent auction followed by a harvest-themed buffet dinner. JASON SPOONER, a NEW ENGLAND-based singer-songwriter, will open the show.  

“We are thrilled to have THE STRUMBELLAS join us for one of our most important events of the year,” said MD ALLISON CONWAY.  “RIVERFEAST is not only a great event, it truly has an impact for families across the region who struggle with food insecurity.  At this time of the year, when we have so much to celebrate, it’s important to us to help out others who are facing hard times.” 

The annual benefit event raises funds for THE GREATER BOSTON FOOD BANK (GBFB), which is the largest hunger relief organization in NEW ENGLAND and among the largest food banks in the country. The GBFB helps feed children and families, veterans, college students, the elderly and working adults in 190 EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS cities and towns.

“Food insecurity in MASSACHUSETTS hurts people of every age and background.  We are incredibly grateful to THE RIVER and its listeners for supporting our efforts for the past 15 years,” said CATHERINE D’AMATO, GBFB President/CEO. “Their generosity makes a difference every year, to our friends, neighbors and colleagues who struggle with feeding themselves and their families.”
