FOLLOWUP: Bruce Springsteen fans – and a local superstar – give big to West Seattle Food Bank

More love for the West Seattle Food Bank from rock ‘n’ roll superstar-land.

You’ll recall the WSFB’s announcement that it would be spotlighted during last night’s Bruce Springsteen concert at KeyArena.

They sent a few photos and then tonight posted the results, including the news that West Seattle’s own Eddie Vedder (who took the stage with The Boss) is helping too:

Thank you to all of the many Bruce Springsteen fans who came out last night and donated generously to the Food Bank. And yes, Eddie Vedder said he would match it! It was a great night for the food bank – just under $24,000 worth! Thank you to Bruce and the E Street Band for partnering with us and thank you to our volunteers who worked so hard to collect all the donations. We had fun and I hope you did too!

You can follow their example and help the WSFB too.

    Springsteen gave four hours of non stop music. Then the crowd went nuts when Eddie got on stage. The idea of giving to the food bank was genious, but then to have Eddie match it is not surprising. He remains such a humble man and were so lucky to have him living in our community.

    I was at the concert and donated there.  Very cool thing for the “Boss” to do.
