The DC area witnessed a great coming together of music and goodwill, to the benefit of the children and mothers of Fresh and Green Academy. Zak Jawad and his band, Zedicus and Abyssinia Roots, played a benefit show April 29th, 2017 at Addia Ababa Restaurant (8233 Fenton Street Silver Spring, MD)

Attendance exceed our expectations, as did the fundraising! The gate was outdone by the generous contributions of many new Friends of Fresh and Green Academy.

Watch this space for more concerts! Come out and here some great music, enjoy some amazing food, and have a wonderful time while helping the kids! If you couldn’t make it but still want to help, you can make a tax deductible donation here!
