Feeney/Winthrop Benefit concert for St. Joseph the Worker later this month

Combining free music with a good cause, Phoenix nonprofit St. Joseph the Worker is hosting its 15th Annual Feeney/Winthrop Benefit Concert at Xavier College Preparatory from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, April 22.

Event proceeds will benefit SJW, which helps low-income and other disadvantaged individuals become self-sufficient through quality employment. Since 2008, the Feeney/Winthrop Benefit Concert has raised over $500,000 for SJW programs and services in the Valley, according to a press release.

Matt Feeney — founding SJW board member and chair of Snell & Wilmer — and Larry Winthrop, who is an Arizona Court of Appeals judge, formed the Feeney/Winthrop band in the early 1990s and have been making music together ever since. A primary focus of the group has always been to support organizations that assist the homeless population in Phoenix and since 2008, SJW has been their chosen beneficiary.

“We’re honored and grateful for 15 years of support and inspiration from Matt and Larry,” said Carrie Masters, SJW’s CEO, in a prepared statement. “Music is a terrific way to bring people together for a wonderful cause. By attending this concert and contributing, attendees will make a difference in the lives of Valley individuals who need a hand up in getting back on their feet through quality employment and transitional housing. Every contribution supports the heart of what SJW does: transforming lives through employment.”

In fiscal year 2022, St. Joseph the Worker provided its services to more than 7,300 individuals and connected 5,399 individuals with employment. The organization serves clients from more than 50 ZIP codes across the Valley through its four locations and 90+ nonprofit, government and private partners. SJW has helped transform the lives of more than 35,000 individuals since its establishment in 1988 and continues to dispense the resources needed to remove employment barriers and create success.

There is no charge for the concert, but SJW asks that attendees consider a donation of $20 per ticket.
