LITHIA — Concertgoers donated more than 3 tons of food during the Newland Communities "Concerts for a Cause" concert series at FishHawk Ranch and Waterset this summer.

The donation to Feeding America Tampa Bay will equal more than 4,000 meals that will go to Tampa Bay area families. Last year's concert series collected more than 2.5 tons of food, which equaled more than 3,600 meals.

This year's lineup included Volcano Joe & the Hot Lava Band, the Frequency Band, Stormbringer, Raizing Cain, Disco Inferno and Category Three. This was the first year the annual series was split between FishHawk Ranch and Waterset, Newland's newest development in Hillsborough County.
