BNA RECORDS artist KELLIE PICKLER headlined a COUNTRY CROSSING-sponsored concert at the DOTHAN CIVIC CENTER that benefited the WIREGRASS AREA UNITED WAY FOOD BANK on DECEMBER 12th. BAMA JAM artist MATT KENNON and STROUDAVARIOUS group HOUSTON COUNTY also performed.
The concert raised $16,366 and 8,825 pounds of food to be distributed to the WIREGRASS area. These donations translate to 92,134 meals that will be made available to those in need. The WIREGRASS AREA UNITED WAY FOOD BANK services a five-county area including HOUSTON, HENRY, DALE, GENEVA and COFFEE counties, as well as parts of NORTHWEST FLORIDA and SOUTHWEST GEORGIA.
The concert was originally planned to be the first concert at COUNTRY CROSSING's CELEBRITY STATION AMPHITHEATER. The show was moved to the DOTHAN CIVIC CENTER because of inclement weather.
