Gift of Note: The 2018 Ramble, Hosted by Adam Ezra, Raised $25,000 for NECHV

On August 25, 2018, close to 4,000 music lovers gathered at Salisbury Beach for the 9th annual Ramble music festival, hosted by Adam Ezra and his New England folk band, the Adam Ezra Group, and RallySound, an organization founded by Ezra that provides assistance in coordinating charitable concerts and community events. The event was sponsored by the Salisbury Beach Partnership, a volunteer group of businesses and residents. Nine bands donated their time and talent on the stage over the course of the day. Attendees also enjoyed fun activities like beach yoga, games, swimming, a rock climbing wall, face painting, art projects, and a cookie bake-off.

Ezra and two Ramble volunteers personally presented the $25,000 at the New England Center and Home for Veterans on October 9, 2018. Thank you to all involved for organizing and hosting such a fun event for the NECHV!
