Michael Franti Celebrates 1000th Recipient Of “Do It For The Love Foundation” In Atlanta [Photos]

first_imgLoad remaining images Michael Franti & Spearhead performed a sold-out show at the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, Georgia on Tuesday night. The evening also served as a very special occasion for the Do It For The Love Foundation,. Do It For The Love is a wish-granting nonprofit organization that brings people living with life-threatening illnesses, children with severe challenges, and wounded veterans to live music concerts. The foundation was started by Franti and his wife, whose experience as a Registered Nurse bridges the couple’s passion with expertise. Tuesday night’s show doubled as an awareness gathering and celebration of their 1000th recipient, with the first-ever recipient from the foundation (who has ALS and was too sick to attend the concert) thanking everyone for their amazing work. It was a complete family affair, and you could clearly see Franti’s wife and son enjoyed the celebration as well. The emotional event also included Zac Brown Band percussionist Daniel de los Reyes for the entire show, which helped the musical experience reach new heights.Photographer Emily Butler was on-site to capture the special evening.

Wolf. “Benton Foundry is a company that has achieved success throughout many years of operation, and, as the company evolves, it continues to bring new career opportunities and better services to Pennsylvanians and consumers alike.”Benton Foundry established itself in Northeast Pennsylvania in the 1950s and, by 1975, was capable of pouring 22 tons of iron daily. Today, Benton Foundry’s state-of-the-art, fully automated facility pours 170 tons of iron daily and anticipates being able to increase its capacity to up to 225 tons per day after expanding. Benton Foundry will expand its core pouring room and cleaning and finishing areas. The company has committed to investing more than $21 million in the project and create at least 40 new jobs over the next three years.“Benton Foundry has prospered by pushing into harder-to-make castings, which has made core assembly an integral part of our success and growth as we double the size of this portion of the foundry,” said Tim Brown, vice president of Benton Foundry. “We feel fortunate to partner with world-renowned ergonomics and industrial engineering professors from Penn State University, in addition to the Governor’s Action Team, whose work reflects tangible results that will provide sustenance for the continued growth of our operation.”The company received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development for the project, which includes a $150,000 Pennsylvania First Grant and $40,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon creation of the new jobs. The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who report directly to the governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania.Benton Foundry has been a leader in the iron casting industry for more than 50 years and is equipped with the latest technology to identify how to make jobs easier, less expensive, and more efficient, including design reviews, 3D modeling, solidification analysis, rapid prototyping, and more.For more information about the Governor’s Action Team or DCED, visit the DCED website, and be sure to stay up-to-date with all of our agency news on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.last_img read more
