The Allman Brothers Band is being awarded the Lena and Joseph Mandelbaum Humanitarian Award at the 3rd Annual Rock and Wrap it Up! Benefit, which will take place June 12 at Pier Sixty in New York City. Rock and Wrap it Up! is an international volunteer food recovery service that feeds the hungry with leftover food from backstage catering at rock concerts (among other sources). The ABB was one of the first groups to join forces with the organization back in 1995. Guitarist Warren Haynes will accept the award on behalf of the band and will also perform an acoustic set.
