Casting Crowns

Following a successful 40-city spring run, multiplatinum-selling group Casting Crowns will extend its THRIVE Tour and play Fresno’s Selland Arena on September 23rd. The THRIVE Tour will feature GRAMMY® nominee Mandisa and Dove Aware nominees Sidewalk Prophets. Casting Crowns has garnered numerous accolades including three GRAMMY® nominations, an RIAA 2x multi-Platinum certification and multiple RIAA Gold certifications, with total album sales surpassing 8 million. Building on that momentum, The THRIVE Tour is sure to not disappoint, with a set list that includes Casting Crowns’ biggest hits – spanning more than a decade of ministry – in addition to selections from the group’s new release, THRIVE (Beach Street/Reunion Records), the band’s first full-length effort in two years.

The songs on THRIVE are an extension of what lead singer/songwriter Mark Hall has been teaching his students at Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church in Atlanta, where he serves as youth pastor. The heart behind the project is for these songs to encourage believers to dig down into the roots of who they are in Christ so that they are fully equipped to reach out and share their faith with others. Following this theme, half of the songs on the album are focused on “reaching out,” while the other half are dedicated to “digging deep.”

Jose Ramirez Headlines “FIGHT FOR WATER 3”

Central Valley 2012 USA Olympian and undefeated (11-0, 8 KO's) professional Top Rank fighter Jose Ramirez will be in the main event on a nationally televised "Fight for Water 3" Saturday, Oct 25 at the Selland Arena in Fresno, Calif.

This is a big event, building off the history-making Fight for Water 1 and 2 which drew record crowds, sponsors and revenue in boxing. Its seldom if ever seen a fighter at this level draw this type of response in the sport.

"We are very proud of Jose as a fighter and as a young man who cares for his community. When Jose goes into the ring he really does 'Fight for Water' which is so important to Fresno and all surrounding communities," said Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank.

"This fight is special to me because on November 1st we have a chance to get the water flowing back in Central California and help keep jobs, food and hope alive. Please vote YES on the Water Bond, as no matter how big this fight is the real fight is the Fight for Water," said Jose Ramirez.

"We are doing things never seen at this level in boxing and It's an honor for me to not only help showcase the future of the sport in Jose Ramirez but to show the nation that we can compete with anyone in doing world class sporting events from the Central Valley," said promoter-agent Rick Mirigian.

"The California Latino Water Coalition is very thankful to Top Rank and Bob Arum for allowing his organization to highlight California's historical drought and the Coalitions fight for water," said Mario Santoyo

California is in a historical drought. Water supplies are running out and the state government is now policing the usage of water and issuing out serious fines to the public.The Central Valley which is the nation's number one food producer has hardly any water to grow food.

Jose Ramirez understands and cares about the farm workers and Farmers who have lost their jobs and farms and he is committed to make a difference in helping.

The solution is to build new reservoirs to store water in wet years for dry years.

The Coalition hopes to pass a California water bond on the November 2014 ballot.

This boxing event will be televised nationally on Top Rank's Solo Boxeo Tecate telecast on UniMas.

San Joaquin Valley Town Hall Presents Jerry Greenfield

Ice Cream, Social Responsibility and an Innovative Business Philosophy

When Jerry Greenfield and Ben Cohen opened their storefront in Burlington, Vermont more than 30 years ago, neither could have predicted that their passion for ice cream would spark a revolution in social and business strategy that would be copied by conglomerates and small businesses alike. They just knew they liked ice cream and they liked local cows. All these years later, as Ben & Jerry’s serves its ice cream around the world, its co-founder is still thinking about ways that successful business can help develop social responsibility into a win win for the company and the community.

Greenfield’s mission and vision is to grow a business in a socially responsible way. He will share his ideas about social spirit, America’s entrepreneurial landscape and ice cream with his signature fun and creative flair.
