On Thursday, November 8th from 7-11pm, we will hold our 2nd Annual Share Your Heart Benefit Concert. Attendees will enjoy a night of live music, food, drinks, and fabulous raffle prizes.

All proceeds from the night will benefit AFTH’s Birth Parent Scholarship Fund, which provides financial assistance to birth parents looking to pursue a degree in higher education. Since its inception in 2014, the fund has helped 19 birth parents and is not limited to AFTH birth parents. Any birth parent whose child was placed after 1985 is eligible.

This year, we are excited to welcome two local bands. Previously known as Under This Fire, the Barker Brothers will be making their debut as a brother duo comprised of Colin and Justin Barker. Residing in Philadelphia, Colin and Justin started playing music from an early age. The brothers describe their music as Folk Rock with some Indie flare. Their recent shows have included The Grape Room in Manayunk and Garlic Fest in Easton, PA. If you would like to learn more about the band, or listen to their new music, check out their Facebook page. We are excited to have the boys back again this year.
Additionally, we are welcoming a new band to the set: haha charade! As Wilmington, DE natives, haha charade made their start as Eleanor and the Roosevelts playing covers. The members of the band are Matt Bowe, Alex Wade, Brendan McBride, and Justin Lefler, and label themselves as an Alternative Rock band. In fact, they just released their new single “We Are the Wolves” on Apple Music and Spotify on Tuesday, October 9th. Their most recent shows have included Crabby Dick’s in Delaware City and the Ministry of Caring’s Crab Fest in September. If you would like to learn more about the band, or listen to their new single, check out their Facebook page. We are excited to welcome them to our line-up this year.
In addition to live music, we will be holding raffles at the event, which include many Philly favorites. Some prizes include an autographed hockey puck from the Philadelphia Flyers, tickets to a Philadelphia Union game, tickets to various theater performances, a gift card to Painting with a Twist, and various restaurant gift cards from around the area. Raffle tickets will be $5 or 5 for $20.
