More than 5,500 music lovers attended the 2011 Band Together concert in downtown Raleigh on May 7. Band Together is an organization that annually focuses on raising funds for various local non-profit organizations. The 2011 Band Together concert raised money for Alliance Medical Ministry, an organization that provides health care to uninsured Wake County residents. Saint Augustine's University served as one of many 2011 Band Together sponsors. "Saint Augustine's University was a true partner working to expand access to healthcare in our community," said Mendi Nieters, Director of Development for Alliance Medical Ministry. "This spring they provided leadership, volunteers and energy to help promote Alliance Medical Ministry through Band Together. Students even produced a video to raise awareness through the student TV station."
