Arts & Entertainment "Down-home" music raises funds for Relay for Life

A lot of generous people turned out for a benefit for Relay for Life on Saturday, March 25 at the Franklin High School Fine Arts Building. The "Singing For A Cure" Relay for Life concert was held from 6 to 10 p.m., and featured several homegrown musical acts.

The audience was entertained by Empty Pockets, with Donnie Clay and Conrad Heffner; Bruce Hedden and the Gospel Mountaineers; and Curtis Blackwell and the Fescue Four, among others.

The evening also featured a cake auction, a 50/50 raffle and refreshments for those attending the event.

The suggested donation was $5 at the door, with all proceeds benefiting Relay for Life of Franklin. Organizer Jean Crane said the evening went well, with a good turnout, and the event raised over $1100 for Relay for Life.
