The fourth annual Aaron Lewis & Friends Benefit Concert, held on June 27, and the third annual Aaron Lewis Invitational Golf Tournament, held on August 9, raised a combined total of $250,000 for the It Takes a Community Foundation (ITAC).
Congrats to Lewis and co. for their huge charity haul this past summer.
ITAC is a charity founded by Lewis and his wife in 2010. One hundred percent of the proceeds were donated to the foundation, which helps to revive rural communities across New England by providing assistance that strengthens, enriches and preserves local towns. The foundation supports initiatives that improve community life — particularly the lives of children — within rural areas.
"It Takes a Community began when my wife and I joined with neighbors in our small adopted hometown to keep the doors of our community school open after state funding was eliminated due to district consolation," explained the singer. "It started out as something very personal and close-to-home, but is morphing into something bigger. If we can make a difference in our little corner of Massachusetts, couldn't we give additional worthy organizations in our area a similar leg up?"
