Omaha Gives! Celebration

Join Playing with Fire and Saving Grace Perishable Food Rescue for an Omaha Gives! event on Wednesday, May 24, at the Harney Street Tavern, 1215 Harney.  Door admission is free; however, each nonprofit encourages donations toward their individual goals during the Omaha Gives! citywide day of giving.

The evening features:

  • Complimentary tastings of food rescued by Saving Grace and transformed by Executive Chef Glenn Wheeler of Spencer’s.
  • Music by The Roadrunners starting at 5:30 p.m. These musicians are alumni of the Blues Society of Omaha’s BluesEd program.
  • Music by the Heather Newman Band from 7 to 10 p.m. An Omaha native, Heather Newman first performed on the Playing with Fire stage at the age of 11, and she appeared on stage several times as a student of the BluesEd program. She now brings her own Kansas City band to Omaha to give back to Playing with Fire.

Whether it’s feeding the soul or feeding bellies, these two nonprofits are making a difference in Omaha.
