Cans for a cause...

3 July 2009 - The Waterfront Blues Festival - On this day the ladies of the 2010 Mrs. Oregon America Pageant got together for a good time and a good cause. Entry into the Blues festival did not cost any money, but they were asking for donations of canned food items and wow did my fellow Oregonians come through; the festival raised $573,688 in cash donations and 87,577 pounds of donated food items all proceeds will go to the Oregon Food Bank. I met some really wonderful and interesting people as I sttod by the entry gate and greeted people and though we were not able to see the performances we did hear some great music including headlining rock-blues artist Johhny Winter.
