Local Happiness Event Features Great Food and
Live Music to Benefit Harvest Hope Food Bank

(Columbia) Harvest Hope Food Bank is proud to partner with Local Happiness to present the first annual Local Happiness Experience & Harvest Hope Food Drive at Richland Mall on Forest Drive from 3:00 – 9:00 pm on Thursday November 8.

The event, held on the first floor of Richland Mall near Sadie’s American Cafeteria, will feature LIVE music by Jim Sonefeld (formerly of Hootie and the Blowfish) from his new inspirational album Found, Lunch Money and Melanie McMillan in addition to FREE food tasting provided by Sadie’s.

The concert and tasting event is FREE with a donation of at least four non-perishable food items for Harvest Hope. To further help Harvest Hope’s mission to feed struggling families across 20 SC counties, 40% of proceeds from the sale of Local Happiness SC made products will go to Harvest Hope.

Belk Salon at Richland Mall will set up in front of Sadie’s American Restaurant and offer a Cut-a-Thon donation drive during the Local Happiness Concert from 3:00 until 9:00 pm. Salon staff members are offering $15 haircuts, $10 chair massages and $5 hand treatments and nail polish sessions, with ALL proceeds going to Harvest Hope.

Local Happiness is a Columbia-based organization that provides schools and other groups like Harvest Hope and the American Diabetes Association the opportunity to fund raise with the sale of South Carolina-based products as opposed to the usual assortment of generic national products like wrapping paper and frozen pizzas or cookie dough.  Local Happiness offers the sale of products from South Carolina product partners like Mr. B’s Sustainable Glassworks, Bell Honey, Blackburn Designs, Blue Moon Specialty Foods, The Butter Bath Company, Lee’s Southern Seasonings, Charleston Cookie Company and many others. For more information on Local Happiness visit: http://localhappiness.net/ or call Ken Carey at 803-360-3433 or shop online and 40% of the purchase price will also benefit  Harvest Hope.

Harvest Hope continues to provide for struggling individuals and families across 20 SC counties, and last year distributed more than 28,383,000 pounds of food to help feed almost 2 million people in our state. To learn more about Harvest Hope visit www.harvesthope.org.
