St. Joseph the Worker is announcing the much-anticipated 16th annual feeney/winthrop Benefit Concert in support of its mission to assist unhoused, low-income and other disadvantaged individuals in securing sustainable, quality employment.

The musical evening is from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, March 16, at the Tempe Center for the Arts, 700 W. Rio Salado Parkway.

In the 2022 fiscal year, SJW reached a pivotal milestone by providing its services to more than 10,000 individuals, a 37% increase over the previous year, and aiding 6,213 individuals in obtaining full-time employment, according to a press release.

The average hourly wage for those newly employed is $17.02, with an impressive 81% receiving associated benefits, the release states.

Since its establishment in 1988, SJW has helped over 35,000 individuals in more than 50 ZIP codes across the Valley. Centered on its commitment to work, SJW continues to dispense the resources needed to remove employment barriers and guide clients toward financial success and self-sufficiency.

“As a founding member of local nonprofit St. Joseph the Worker and a member of feeney/winthrop, I am honored to be hosting our 16th Annual Benefit Concert,” says Matt Feeney, partner at Snell & Willmer. “By joining us for this magical evening of acoustic music, your support is more than a contribution; it’s a catalyst for empowerment, guiding individuals toward meaningful employment and paving their paths to success.”

Carrie Masters, CEO at St. Joseph the Worker echoed a similar sentiment.

“For the past 15 years, this event has been an instrumental force in raising over $615,000 to further our work at SJW, and we are eager to welcome our community for the 16th Annual feeney/winthrop Benefit Concert,” she said in the release. “Every dollar raised from the concert will go to directly serve our clients on their journey towards self-sufficiency.”
