Press Release – Meals on Wheels for Pets Nassau, Inc. (MOW4Pets) will hold an annual fund-raising musical performance, featuring Tom Becker, at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 2600 Atlantic Avenue, on Friday, October 24th at 7 pm.

With the sound and grace of the late John Denver, area musician and singer Tom Becker performs his music mastery with a talented band and performs more than 60 minutes of the famous musical hits. Becker is a former member of the legendary folk group, The New Christy Minstrels. He is a successful songwriter and has appeared with music legends like Willie Nelson, Ray Charles and Jerry Lee Lewis. Mr. Denver’s music, as performed by Becker, casts a spell that crosses the barriers of age, economics, geography, language and politics.
“It’s a very special musical evening that will be remembered with a smile. Last year’s guests are still humming those beautiful Denver songs,” offered Deborah Watford, executive director of MOW4Pets. “Plus the real beneficiaries are the companion animals of local homebound seniors receiving Meals on Wheels support.”
