#GivingTuesdayNow Live Stream Fundraising Concert

Tuesday, May 5, 2020 5:30PM to 6:30 PM


Benefiting Hospice SLO County during an unprecedented time of cancelled fundraisers and lost income. 

The concert is free but we hope you will feel compelled to donate what you can!  All proceeds will go towards Hospice SLO County's general operational fund.

#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

We believe that generosity has the power to unite and heal communities in good times and bad. A global threat like COVID-19 affects more than just the infected. A pandemic like this touches every person on the planet, and it presents an opportunity to come together as a global community.
