Imagine There's No Hunger
10.26.2009 | posted by edpaffjr
O.A.R. has teamed up with Hard Rock International to be the Global Ambassador for their 2009 Imagine There’s No Hunger campaign to benefit WHY, a nonprofit organization that strives to fight against hunger and poverty in America and around the world.

To kick off the campaign, the band will be doing a very special performance at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square on Monday, November 9th. To gain entry to this show you will need to be one of the first 300 people to bring 5 non-perishable food items to one of the three Emergency Food Providers listed below:
  • The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network) located at 211 Fulton Ave in Hempstead, Long Island
  • The Community Food Bank of New Jersey located at 31 Evans Terminal Road in Hillside, NJ
  • Yorkville Common Pantry located at Eight East 109th Street in New York City
Food donations for this campaign will be accepted beginning at 9 AM on Thursday, November 5th. Passes for the show will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis and are expected to go quickly (only 100 tickets per location). Please note, individuals that donate 10 or more non-perishable food items are eligible to receive two passes to the show. However, no more than two passes will be awarded to any one individual. Anyone who makes a food donation to one of the three designated Emergency Food Providers on November 5th but does not receive a pass to the show can enter their name to be a part of a lottery. All emergency food providers will close promptly at 5pm.

For those unable to attend the food drive on November 5th, tickets and passes for a meet and greet with the band will be available via auction at beginning today, Monday, October 26th at 3 PM ET. All of the proceeds from this auction will be donated directly to WHY to help support their efforts to fight global hunger and poverty.
