Hometown Love 2

Hometown Love 2
May 20, 2017
11 am – 6pm
George Washington Carver Center
7 Academy Street, Norwalk CT


“Hometown Love 2” to be held at the George Washington Carver Center  of Norwalk, CT on May 20, 2017, will be a fun, interactive community-pride family event for people of all ages, hosted by Factory Underground music recording artist FNX (Kenneth Shuler)

Titled after a song the artist wrote about his beloved hometown, the first annual event was held on June 24 2016, consisted of a basketball tournament, barbecue cook out and canned food drive. The music artist set a goal of 500 non-perishable food items, with over 600 items collected at the door, which were donated to Person-to-Person Food Bank of Norwalk.

For the music artist who has been helping people in his community almost as long as he has been making music, hosting the Hometown Love event at the Carver and raising canned food has a lot to do with his very personal story.

 “The sad fact is that I grew up in poverty, and from a broken home. We didn’t always know where our next meal was coming from. Ever since then I wanted to give back, to help others in need,” said the Norwalk musician.

“I chose the Carver for this event because all of my own success in music and business can be traced back to my time at the Carver. Who would have bet on me, a young black male from the getting a double Bachelors Degree in Business and a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership? Only the Carver Foundation,” he said.

Hometown Love 2 will take the artist’s vision to the next level, not only raising food donations, but a sizable goal of tuition scholarships to the Carver Center Summer Program.

“This year we will raise 1000 cans of food, and we want to pay for 10 or more additional students to have a rich summer experience like only the Carver can provide. It’s all about the children. I believe that to support the Carver is to invest in the future of Norwalk and this the least that I can do for my hometown.

 A minimum donation of two cans of food is the only price of admission to what promises to be a fun-for-all ages, community event, including a 10-team, 5-on-5 basketball tournament, a barbecue cook out with tons of delicious food, a DJ to spin music, special musical guests and athletes, an inflatable bounce-house and face-painting for the kids. Hometown Love is open to all and expected to draw people from New York and Connecticut.

Hometown Love 2 is being produced by Norwalk’s top recording studio Factory Underground, and co-sponsored by George Washington Carver Foundation. All food proceeds to go to local food banks including Person to Person. Cash donations and Event Sponsorships kindly accepted, with all monies going to tuition scholarship for Carver Foundation of Norwalk summer programs.
