Man who raised over R600 000 is throwing potato salad party

Zack Brown is planning PotatoStock 2014, an all-ages, charity-minded party Saturday in downtown Columbus featuring bands, food trucks, beer vendors, potato-sack races and definitely potato salad.

His effort on Kickstarter to buy potato salad ingredients took on a life of its own and attracted worldwide attention as the amount grew.

The Idaho Potato Commission and corporate sponsors have donated supplies for Brown and volunteers to whip up 300 pounds (136 kilograms) of potato salad.

The Columbus Dispatch (bit.ly/1vgYdWm ) reports Brown used some of the money to aid charities fighting hunger and homelessness.
