A primary goal of the Bands on the Bayou Concert Series is to raise money for our local Pensacola charities. 

In 2023, we selected six non-profit organizations (two for each concert) to become recipients of its proceeds. In total, we raised $48,000 for those deserving organizations. 

Our selected non-profit recipients this past year were:
