The Joy of Sox® was honored with eTown‘s prestigious e-Chievement Award® last week in Boulder, CO. Nick and Helen Forster, founders of eTown, made the presentation to Tom Costello, Jr , Chief Sock Person.
The award is periodically given to selected nonprofits based on the criteria of “Celebrating those who are making a positive difference in their community and beyond.”
eTown is also a nonprofit and has the mission of combining music, ideas and community. They hold a weekly music session where artists perform and are then interviewed by Nick. On the evening when Tom received the award the first performer was John Fulbright, a Grammy nominated singer. Following John’s first set he was interviewed by Nick then played another song.
Tom then went on stage and had a nice conversation with Nick about the mission and impact The Joy of Sox has on the homeless. Helen and Nick then presented the award.
After the award Bahamas did a set and was also interviewed.
The show will air on over 300 stations from September 25th – October 1st across the US, depending on the day and time that the individual affiliate stations air the show.
Many stations also stream over the web, so you can listen from their websites, anywhere in the world. eTown also podcasts the show. To find out how and where to tune in you can click this eTown link.
A super thanks to eTown – especially Helen, Nick, Steph and Margo – for recognizing The Joy of Sox and the work they do providing new socks for the homeless.
