Raising Meals with the Last Waltz

Here in Dayton, we feed the hungry with art.

On February 24th, Dayton musicans, artists, and friends gathered to recreate the performances of The Last Waltz - - the film version of The Band's final concert on November 25th, 1976.
What began as one man's dream became an event that brought hundreds together to support each other and their community.

Chris Shea and I chorographed and performed a dance to the opening waltz number (see photos below).

We raised nearly 23,000 meals for The Foodbank that night.

Thank you Jeff Opt, Gilly's, and all the folks who participated, contributed, and attended!
It wouldn't have been Such a Night without you.
