Join us for a party on the Vroman’s Paseo to help collect food donations for Friends In Deed! We will have a scale to weigh your donations and the heaviest donation will win a prize. Every person/family that brings a donation will receive a raffle ticket to enter a prize drawing.
We’ll have live music, refreshments and a photobooth, too!
If you can’t make the party, we will be collecting donations from Friday, November 10th through Monday, November 13th.

Live Music By:
A Ragin’ Cajun from Lafayette, Louisiana, Levi Petree was born on the bayou and infuses that area’s unique spirit into his music. His songs are lyric and guitar-driven, blending his love of British punk and new wave, Outlaw country of the 1970s, and the anthemic heartland-rock songs that top 40 DJs don’t seem to spin anymore. He and his Encino-based band, The Radio Publica, are known for their rowdy and relentless live performances. Together, they recently released their debut album, sarcastically titled It's Country.
