The band will also give away an autographed UMBowl poster to one lucky giver.

The food pantry at Carver Center serves over 1,300 people per month and is the only grocery store-style pantry in town.

Food Pantry Donation Wish List:

Rice (up to 5 lb. bags)
Cooking Oil (1 liter bottles or less)

If I am able to bring frozen hot dogs, tubs of butter and cooking oil is there any assurance this gets used by the poor for food and not a key party backstage?
