Music in the Park benefits nonprofits in Bucks County


On Sunday, Sept. 19, at Peace Valley Park, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County (BBBSBC) will partner with several local nonprofit organizations to host a free community event for all ages.
Guests are welcome to come out to the first annual, Music in the Park event from 2 to 5 p.m., where they can enjoy live music from local cover artists, Cara Cartney and Barefoot Bobby, with a special appearance from the School of Rock in Doylestown House Band.
Listen to music from as early as the 1930s to today, and “dress for the occasion.” Performers will cover every genre.
The event will help raise awareness for Big Brothers Big Sisters, as well as other local nonprofit organizations such as:
 A Woman’s Place - a nonprofit that’s committed to empowering women, and ending intimate and domestic violence.
 NOVA - a nonprofit that supports, counsels and empowers victims of sexual assault and other serious crimes in Bucks County and works to prevent and eliminate violence in society through advocacy, training, community education and prevention programs.
 R.J. Leonard Foundation - a nonprofit that educates, initiates careers and personally mentor young adults who are aging out of the foster care system.

 Kiwanis of Central Bucks - a nonprofit of volunteers that are dedicated to improving the world, one child and one community at a time.
 United Way - works together with other nonprofits to promote the common good, and create a better life for all.
 Children of God Educational Services - their mission is to foster a love of learning for each student, and to respect the uniqueness of all.
Come to find out more about the work that each of these organizations does, and learn more about the resources that are available in the community. Each charity will have games and light refreshments for the whole family, as well as representatives that can answer any questions.
This is a picnic style – bring your own snacks – event.
“We are always looking for innovative and imaginative ways to spread the word about our services, as well as the services in the community,” said Rachel Kurtz, BBBSBC’s CEO. “We all serve a purpose to make Bucks County a better place, so we decided to team up to raise awareness for all of our causes.
