Classic American rock band O.A.R. (Of A Revolution), presented by Delta Airlines, will perform at the 27th Annual Party with a Purpose. "I think this event will be very successful in raising money to help feed our hungry brothers and sisters," said Marc Roberge. "We're proud to be part of a celebration that will serve a greater purpose."

Notorious for performing intense and vibrant live shows, O.A.R. will close out the 27th Annual Party with a Purpose in what will be a celebratory night of eating, drinking and kicking hunger. With 13 albums, a string of Madison Square Garden sellouts, USO trips to Iraq and Kuwait, millions of albums sold, and shows around the world, O.A.R. continue to cover new ground creatively. The band is currently working on brand new music and will be touring across the United States this summer.

Taste of the NFL's Kick Hunger Challenge is a season-long fundraising campaign that pits fans from all 32 NFL markets against each other for a friendly competition to raise money for their favorite NFL team’s local food bank.
