Helping feed the hungry, now that’s music to my ears! Sleep Country Amphitheater will host the ‘Share Food for Tickets‘ food drive to benefit Share of Vancouver on Thursday, August 30, 2012 from noon to 5:00 p.m. at Grand Central Fred Meyer (2500 Columbia House Blvd., Vancouver) and at Sleep Country Amphitheater (17200 NE Delfel Road, Ridgefield) on September 4, 2012 at 311 and Slightly Stoopid and on September 6, 2012 at Willie Nelson.

Vouchers can be redeemed on the day of show only at Sleep Country Amphitheater.
For every 25 pounds of food you donate, you will be entered into a drawing to win one of six pairs of VIP box tickets with access to the VIP Lounge for either concert.

Last year’s ‘Share Food for Tickets’ drives brought in 24,000+ pounds of food, as well as $2,300 in cash donations. “It is so important to give back to the community that we live and work in,” said Dan Braun, Sleep Country Amphitheater’s Chief Executive Officer. “Share works daily to serve those most in need in our community and we are pleased to be supporting them again this year with the Share Food for Tickets” drive.
Most needed food items for Share’s Backpack and Hot Meals programs include: peanut butter, tuna, canned chili and soup, canned fruits and vegetables, instant oatmeal and pancake mix, ground coffee, pasta and rice, and boxed meals.
