A benefit concert that needs our support!
Big & Rich are coming to Calsonic Arena May 15th (Sunday), for a show where the net proceeds go to help programs that help our youth. T-G had an article about it in March that describes more details and here is the link to get some tickets.
I was curious how Bedford County was able to bring these performers in and found out there is a family connection. Read all about it!
Personally, I think this is a great direction for all of our County to make up for the lost income our civic groups have experienced from the turmoil in the Walking Horse industry. We have been involved in one of those events for over 20 years and watched our donations to the schools drop to a third or less of what they were 10 years ago.
The success of this show will influence the movement to bring more entertainment into the County. It is one we need to support if at all possible. Here is their website if you want to learn more. I believe another local performer will be there as well so check out the T-G article by John Carney.
This is a paid political ..... nah, not really. Just somethin' I believe will benefit all of us in one form or another.
