OSHKOSH, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) today announced that it will be hosting a second musical event as part of the Company’s Feed the Body, Feed the Soul initiative. First launched in August 2017, the musical event raises money to purchase food items which will be packed by community volunteers and donated to those in need. Partnering with the Refuge for the Arts, the musical experience will be a Salute to Tom Petty featuring Cory Chisel & Friends.
The event will take place on Saturday, April 14 at 7:30 PM at the Menominee Nation Arena in Oshkosh.

“As we get ready to host our second Feed the Body, Feed the Soul musical experience, we are thrilled to continue to make a positive impact in Northeast Wisconsin. Through music, we are able to raise money and inspire the community to use their time and talent. After our musical experience, we encourage people to be part of our food packing event on May 18. Just three hours of time can help fight poverty in Northeast Wisconsin. I invite everyone to join in the fun,” said Jodie Larsen, Oshkosh Corporation Vice President of Community Engagement.
Oshkosh Corporation’s first Feed the Body, Feed the Soul musical event featured The Temptations, Cory Chisel, Cat Power and many other artists. Money raised through ticket sales was used to purchase rice which was then packaged by more than 900 volunteers. Not only did 900 volunteers package more than 250,000 pounds of rice, they were also able to enjoy live music and help support those in need in 18 Northeast Wisconsin counties.
