nTelos Wireless and the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank are joining forces to engage the community to end hunger locally through a monthly, summertime donation drive.
During Fridays after Five, a community gathering tradition, patrons are asked to stop by the nTelos Wireless & Blue Ridge Area Food Bank booth to donate on the 1st Friday of every month.
Fridays After Five, presented by Bud Light, continues to be Charlottesville’s favorite live concert series. 2015 will be the 28th year of free live music and fun. The first event will kick off at the nTelos Wireless Pavilion on April 17th and will run each Friday thereafter ending on September 11. Each week volunteers work the concessions on behalf of a variety of local non-profits who share in the proceeds, which raises tens of thousands of dollars to support their work in our community. The spring and summer schedule features local artists of myriad musical styles; there is something for everyone! Unwind Friday evenings at this fabulous and FREE Charlottesville institution.
