Bucks Non-Profits Hosting Free “Music In The Park” Concert

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County is teaming up with other local non-profits to host a free concert.

“Music in the Park” will feature local cover artists Cara Cartney and Barefoot Bobby, plus graduates of the Doylestown School of Rock. It’s set to take place at Peace Valley Park on Sunday, September 19 from 2 to 5 p.m.

“We are always looking for innovative and imaginative ways to spread the word about our
services, as well as the services in the community.” says Rachel Kurtz, BBBSBC’s CEO. “We all serve a purpose to make Bucks County a better place, so we decided to team up to raise awareness for all of our causes.”

The live musicians will feature various genres, including some tunes from as early as the 1930s. Along with the music, the free community event will have games and refreshments.

“Music in the Park” will be a picnic style event. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own snacks and dress accordingly.

BBBSBC Marketing and Events Manager Rob Peterman added knowing what resources are available is especially important now.

“Obviously a lot of people have been impacted by the pandemic. This last year has been really tough for a lot of people and there’s a lot of great agencies right here in our community that can help anybody out no matter what they’re going through.”

The event will focus on raising awareness for the following non-profits:

  • A Woman’s Place – a nonprofit that’s committed to empowering women, and ending intimate and domestic violence.
  • NOVA – a nonprofit that supports, counsels and empowers victims of sexual assault and other serious crimes in Bucks County and works to prevent and eliminate violence in society through advocacy, training, community education and prevention programs.
  • R.J. Leonard Foundation – a nonprofit that educates, initiates careers and personally mentor young adults who are aging out of the foster care system.
  • Kiwanis of Central Bucks – a nonprofit of volunteers that are dedicated to improving the world, one child and one community at a time.
  • United Way – works together with other nonprofits to promote the common good, and create a better life for all.
  • Children of God Educational Services – their mission is to foster a love of learning for each student, and to respect the uniqueness of all.
