What began as a reaction to the terrorist attacks of 9/11 has grown into an annual music event to raise funds for a variety of social-change organizations. Band Together has so far raised $2.1 million for the nonprofits it serves. For the past two years, Duke Realty has supported Band Together’s mission as a Hall of Fame sponsor, and VP of Leasing Hooker Manning serves on the board of the organization. Its annual event has grown to be the largest charity-focused music festival in North Carolina. The organization’s 2013 festival will benefit the Tammy Lynn Center for Developmental Disabilities.
