Band Together, a Triangle-based organization that uses live music as a platform for social change, raised $600,000 for Communities In Schools of Durham County and Wake County at its main event in May that featured Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Daryl Hall and John Oates.

The concert, which drew more than 4,000 attendees to Walnut Creek Amphitheatre, pushed fundraising closer to the goal of $1 million for the 2014 partnership with CIS. Funds will go toward providing resources to schools to kick-start students’ success. Learn more at
