SECOND ANNUAL HOMELESS AID FEATURING LIVE MUSIC BY KENNY HOWES AND THE YEAH! AND GARY STIER, TO BENEFIT THE METRO-ATLANTA TASK FORCE FOR THE HOMELESS.

(PRWEB) May 17, 2001

ATLANTA, GA– The Second Annual Homeless Aid event (http://www.HomelessAid.com) will be held on Saturday, June 23, 2001. Executive Director, Michael Smith created this event a year ago, in order to give something back to the community. Homeless Aid will again benefit the Metro-Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless (http://www.HomelessTaskForce.org), a non-profit agency that serves as the central clearinghouse for services for homeless families and individuals and organizes a local coalition of social service providers, advocates, and representatives of the public and private sectors.

This year?s event features music by Kenny Howes and The Yeah! and Gary Stier. Kenny Howes and The Yeah! (http://www.KennyHowes.com) is a critically acclaimed ?power pop? group from Atlanta, GA. According to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution: ?There is no more entertaining band in Atlanta.” The band is a non-stop rock and roll outfit known for its catchy hooks, strong melodies, thick harmonies, sincere lyrics, and direct and powerful delivery. Gary Stier is better known as the front-man of both Buffalo Nickel (http://www.buffalonickel.net) and Lonesome Jones. His music blends the beauty of country-rock with the kick of power pop. His most recent recording, ?Long Play 33 1/3,? was ranked one of the top 10 albums of the year by Jim Farber of The Village Voice. Complete information on the artists performing as well as song samples can be found on the HomelessAid.com website.

When discussing the problem of Atlanta?s 40,000 indigent and homeless around the water-cooler, you may have heard:

?Atlanta’s homeless people are from somewhere else.?

?More services will attract more homeless.?

?The police should do something.?

?They should be put back in mental health institutions?

?While you probably don?t feel this way, many do. Repeating these myths to our co-workers and friends makes them seem true, and makes it much easier to deny someone help, turn your head or continue to do nothing?, said Michael Smith, Executive Director of Homeless Aid. Visit the Homeless Aid website to see other myths and find out the truth about homelessness.

Homeless Aid is currently seeking corporate sponsors to assist with the event. Gold-level event sponsors to date include Dogwood Brewing Company (http://www.dogwoodbrewing.com) and Sweetwater Brewing Company (http://www.sweetwaterbrew.com). Sponsors can help by providing items that can be auctioned or raffled to raise money, by making monetary donations to the Homeless Task Force, or by providing in-kind donations of food and beverages or supplies for the event.
