2012 Indianapolis Food Drive Results- Over 16,000 people fed!!

food-drive_0 A huge thank you to all of you who either donated at the show or bought a Tshirt to support the Gleaners Food Drive we sponsored at the Indy Show September 30th. We had a wonderful time and raised so much more this year in cash donations and food donations! We were also lucky to have some guests stop by to support the cause: Jim and Susie Avett. Oh yeah, Jim signed the guitar as well.  You all played a huge role in the food drive success by donating at the show and by purchasing a Tshirt from afar!   jimsusieguitar You all made a huge difference in the lives of so many hungry Hoosiers.

Here are the results:

16,765 people will receive meals from our efforts! This is more than double those who were in attendance at the show.


  • 1,647 lbs of food collected (1,330 last year) which will feed 1,235 people (almost a ton of food collected)
  • $3106 collected in cash donations and shirts orders which feeds 15,530 people ($1 feeds 5 people)

Remember our sponsors who donated their time and efforts and please support them if you are ever in need of any of their services:27 Design Co, SDC Guitars, Sterling Impressions, Gleaners Food Bank and of course The Avett Brothers.


Also congratulations to Mark Stoke who won the guitar and Dawn Pruitt who won the signed poster (both from Indiana) markstokeguitar

So again Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We look forward to next year and making it even better!
