With the intention of building more financial support for the victims of this spring’s tornado disaster in Lamar County, a Benefest will be held from noon to midnight on Saturday, June 25th at the Lamar County Schools Fine Arts Center. The FAC is located at 126 Burnette Road in Barnesville.
I am sorry you feel this way. The goal of the concert is to raise $10,000+ to go directly to the victims of this devastating tornado. I believe, wholeheartedly, this will happen. I nor any of the other volunteers involved are making a dime off of this and believe you me it is quite a task to put it on. You're right about one thing, it is a "feel good event". I feel good about being a part of it. The people performing and volunteering will feel good about doing it. And the people who come out and donate to the cause will feel good about doing so. If you don't want the help we are attempting to provide, post your name and let me know and I will personally see what else we might do to help you. Thanks and God bless!
We took a hard hit, I think all in all the county did a good job concidering. The volunteers were wounderful. I hate that it happened but I would not wish it on any one else, as I do not look for anyone else to have a miracle cure, but the love and support you have shown and continue to show is very much appreciated and sure helps us continue on in a positive manner, Thank you...
