Rockin’ for the Hungry food drive adds silent auction of music memorabilia

This holiday season, one in seven residents of Washtenaw County won’t have enough to eat. During the Rockin’ for the Hungry food and fund drive, Food Gatherers staff and 107one radio personalities will be “freezin’ for a reason” with a six-day live radio broadcast outside of local Kroger stores from November 27 to December 2. This year, 107one and Food Gatherers will be offering music memorabilia through an online silent auction! Incredible gems like a lyric sheet signed by Brian Wilson and an acoustic guitar signed by Passenger will be offered for sale.

Rockin’ for the Hungry runs at Washtenaw County Kroger Supermarkets until 4:00PM on Sunday, December 2.

You can view and bid for all the auction items here: https://www.32auctions.com/Rockin2018
