An Ode to the Meaning of Love – God’s Love Staff Gives Thanks to Executive Producers of Love Rocks NYC

The inception of Love Rocks NYC started 9 years ago over coffee with long time friends, Greg Williamson, and God’s Love We Deliver Chief Philanthropy Officer, Stephen Covello. Greg Williamson pitched a benefit concert at City Winery; the idea was to have the venue be small and intimate. As they started working on the concept, they realized they could go BIG all to support the beloved organization. Great long time friend, event planner Nicole Rechter and legendary fashion designer John Varvatos joined the team, and Love Rocks NYC held at the Beacon Theatre, was born.

Love Rocks NYC has made an enormous difference for God’s Love We Deliver, garnering billions of media impressions and raising millions of dollars to fund our medically tailored meals. Over the past eight years, the Love Rocks NYC benefit concert has helped God’s Love We Deliver prepare and deliver more than 3.3 million meals to New Yorkers who need it, each meal is nutritionally tailored to the person’s specific needs.

Greg, John, and Nicole work tirelessly to create an epic experience for the artists, sponsors, and concertgoers.  Staff at God’s Love we Deliver are eternally grateful for their vision, direction, and hard work.
