    As the beneficiary of the 10th Annual Joyce and Bill Toms Thanksgiving Benefit Concert, The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul would like to express a very deep and heartfelt thanks to Joyce and Bill Toms, their family, and all of the incredible musicians who came together at The Hard Rock Café in Station Square on Wednesday, November 25 to raise money and awareness for our important work and mission. The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul provides basic needs assistance such as food, clothing, furniture, shelter, transportation, prescription medication, utility assistance, and indigent burial aid to over 100,000 people annually throughout southwestern Pennsylvania. More importantly, we serve as a beacon of hope to a world in which cynical despair, partisan ideologies, and selfish indifference often thwart the imagination, will, and ability of good people to make a difference. Welsh academic, novelist, and critic, Raymond Henry Williams wrote that "To be truly radical is to make hope possible rather than despair convincing." Thanks to the generosity and talent of "radicals" like Bill Toms & Hard Rain, The Stevee Wellons Band, and John Gresh's Gris Gris, the beacon of hope was shining brightly at the Hard Rock Café last Wednesday night!

    This past Wednesday night, local musicians gathered for the 9th Annual Joyce & Bill Toms Thanksgiving Benefit Concert! For the past nine years, Joyce and Bill have organized an evening of great music and fellowship to raise awareness and thousands of dollars in support of local charities serving people in need. This year’s beneficiary was The Down Syndrome Association of Pittsburgh, a group of parents and professionals dedicated to enriching the lives of people with Down syndrome. While our local newscasters were concentrating on “black Friday” sales and our national anchors spewed their particular spin of doom and despair; they failed to capture one of the most important stories of the season – the story of people sharing their gifts and talents to help others! Author Kurt Vonnegut once quipped that his epitaph should read: “The only proof he needed for the existence of God was music.” Indeed, there was plenty of proof at the Hard Rock Café Wednesday night. The Jimmy Adler Band brought the proof; Jill Simmons & Friends brought the proof; Bill Toms & Hard Rain brought the proof!
