Bruce Springsteen rocked the stage Sunday, April 5.

Wanna hear something cool?
He offered to give the Capital Area Food Bank a Meet and Greet package if we raised more than $10,000. He also agreed to match the funds raised, up to $50,000.

We raised $17,350 from the Meet and Greet package! And with Springsteen’s matching gift, $34,700 will help nourish hungry Central Texans. Amazing.

The package included: four concert tickets, four E-Street Lounge passes and a Meet and Greet with Bruce.

At the concert, he asked fans to help support the Food Bank by making a donation. We raised nearly $4,000 and more than 1,500 pounds of food.

Bruce Springsteen is a member of World Hunger Year’s Artists Against Hunger and Poverty Program, which supports the efforts of community-based hunger relief organizations across North America. He typically selects a hunger relief organization to be a beneficiary in the city in which he performs.

Were you there? Did you hear the Food Bank’s shout-out? Tell us about it in our comments section.
