Food Bank To Benefit From “America” And Gural
Vernon, NY (WIBX) - The Food Bank of Central New York will be getting a huge check courtesy of a local benefactor this Friday.
Jeff Gural, Chairman of American Racing and Entertainment, will present a check with proceeds from the July 5th "America" concert along with $10 per ticket from his own pockets.
Ursula Maunder with Vernon Downs says the donation is significant, amounting to $73,710.
Gural is also matching donations from a concert taking place on August 29, 2012.
He is donating fifty cents to the Food Bank of Central New York, fifty cents to the Utica Food Bank, and one dollar to the Central New York Veterans Outreach for every ticket sold from Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band concert.
Gural has also given $150,000 worth of Springsteen concert tickets to the USO for active duty military personnel.
