(Tampa,
FL) You can make a difference in your
community while enjoying the biggest live music and more Festival in
Florida! A food drive to benefit the Metropolitan Ministries of Tampa Bay will
be a part of Tampa Bay’s Big Guava Music Festival May 2-4, at the
Florida State Fairgrounds.

 

Donors
who bring five (5) non-perishable food items at the collection booth
by the Will Call windows at the front gate of The Florida State
Fairgrounds will get a beautifully designed Big Guava poster created
by world renowned artist David Lebo as our gift.

 

The first 250
people to bring twenty (20) items will receive a special treat:
a numbered original silkscreen print of this artwork.

 

The collection
booth is manned an hour before gates open each day and 5 hours after
gates open. Collection times at the gates are:

Friday, May 2 – 3:30PM

Saturday-Sunday, May 3 and 4 – 11:30AM

 

Imagine
receiving a valuable work of art just for helping feed those in your community
less fortunate than yourself. The Big Guava Music Festival boasts some of
the best live music, unlimited free thrill rides, craft beer gardens and
more.

 

About
the artist: David “LEBO”
Le Batard is widely recognized for working in a wide spectrum of
creative mediums including murals, paintings and sculptures. He is
hailed as the innovator of Postmodern Cartoon Expressionism, a movement
that applied cartoon imagery and combined it with richly saturated balances of
color and unique linear composition, ranging from the abstract to the
highly narrative, that inspires emotion and creates layers of
meaning.

 

About Metro Min:

at risk of becoming homeless in the Tampa Bay community through
services that alleviate suffering, promote dignity and instill self-sufficiency.
When individuals and families in

Hillsborough,
Pinellas, Pasco and Polk Counties need help, they turn to Metropolitan
Ministries. Here they find compassion, hope and answers.
