The good Cornellians can do: Mark Rust

Mark Rust

Cornellian Mark Rust shares how he gives back to his community—through music.

"After Cornell, I started my music career in Ithaca," Mark says. "Although I moved away decades ago, I still love getting back to town to perform. So, for the last few years in December, I return to Ithaca to do a benefit concert for the Food Bank of the Southern Tier."

"Happy to say that, along with my special guests John Simon, Dee Specker, and Russell Posegate, we have raised thousands of dollars for the food bank. They serve hundreds of food-compromised families throughout several counties in the region. So, in addition to having a wonderful night of music, we're helping needy families to make the holidays a little brighter."
