Greater Toledo Community Foundation (GTCF) has announced that it will be gifting concerts to the community as a “Soundtrack to Summer.” This generous gift will bring the sounds of summer to Toledo and provide a great opportunity for people to come together and enjoy live music.

The concerts will be held at various locations throughout the city and will feature a diverse range of musical styles and genres. From jazz and blues to rock to country, there will be something for everyone to enjoy. Two of the concerts will be free to attend, making them accessible to all community members.

The concerts are part of a 12-month campaign called, “Fifty Years of Funding Futures,” which includes an entire 2023 calendar of community events and programs centered on honoring the past, celebrating the present and equipping future generations for continued community impact.

“We believe that by working together, we can make a real difference in the lives of the people in our community,” said Keith. “We are committed to supporting a wide range of initiatives that will help to improve the quality of life for everyone in Toledo and the surrounding areas.”
