Another Christmas in July report

During the second Christmas in July event last week - a ten hour marathon concert at The Positive Vibe Cafe - we had several guests come in who had no idea of the event taking place. First you could see them think "Christmas music? In July?", but they got the picture pretty quickly of course.

One gentleman came in as part of a small group of chimneysweepers on break from a job. He approached our merch ladies and told them how much he enjoyed the music and te cause, and proceeded to buy three of our CDs. Then he mentioned that he wished he would have known about the food drive, because he would have like to have contributes cans of food. He asked if instead he could write a check to the Foodbank, which of course we said "yes" to. A few days later we were processing our paperwork for the event, and realized he has written a thousand-dollar check to the Central Virginia Foodbank.

Needless to say, we're still a bit speechless.
