La Crescenta Presbyterian Church will be presenting a benefit concert for Children’s Hunger Fund on Friday, July 15 at 7 p.m. in the sanctuary. Performing will be ambient-rock band “Future of Forestry” as well as the band “I AM We.” The cost is $9 online at FutureofForestry.com or $11 at the door.
Children’s Hunger Fund is asking all participants to bring along school supplies to the event to support their back to school backpacks program which supports needy students in the San Fernando Valley. All proceeds will go to support the many ministries of Children’s Hunger Fund throughout the United States.
Future of Forestry (which got its name from the C.S. Lewis poem) signed in 2006 with Nashville based Credential Recordings, a division of EMI Records and has six album credits to its name including the critically acclaimed Travel trilogy series. The concert at LCPC will be their only performance in Los Angeles County on their upcoming tour.
Future of Forestry has many videos posted on Youtube currently and one of their songs is featured in a national commercial. Their style of music is eclectic and incorporates elements of classical music such as cello and vibraphone.
Due to an extensive marketing effort by Children’s Hunger Fund and the church, a large turn-out is anticipated for this one of a kind event that will rock the Crescenta Valley.
