Rock those Flaming Hearts

Flaming Hearts Food Bank Fundraiser

Three new local bands will be performing throughout the night at this fundraiser presented by Focus On Great. The event will be held at the Brooklyn Pub at Lake City Bowl on February 13 from 7 p.m. to midnight.

The Bands

The Renita Zintel Band is bringing you some seriously bluesy Blues Rock

Steel Toad will get your toes tapping with Classic Rock from the 80s

Silent Gun Phenomenon will rock you with Classic Rock/Indie Rock

Musician Stefan Pimenta, says, “We, as musicians, would like to give back, to benefit those less fortunate than us in our community. Stocks are depleted by January, and we would like to help restock the shelves.”

By utilizing Valentine’s Day, the organizers will be helping the Food Bank at a time when it is most needed. Food items can also be donated at the event. Please note this is a 19+ event, and ID will be required. 

There will be a chance auction as well, with lots of great donations, including two guitars, one electric and one acoustic, from local businesses who wish to help support the cause.

Look for plenty of door prizes, and games throughout the night.
