“Fun for a cause” is one of the mantras of Lake Wylie Children’s Charity, the local philanthropic group that raises funds for the families of seriously ill children and teens. The charity will put that mantra into action on October 4th, when it holds its annual benefit concert – Lake Wylie Children’s Charity’s biggest fundraising event of the year.
The benefit concert – which starts at noon and runs through about 6:00 PM – will be held at T-Bone’s on the Lake located in Lake Wylie, South Carolina; though the day will focus on music, plenty of other activities will be on offer, too. Families who attend can expect games, a special “kids’ zone,” silent auctions, contributions from the Carolina Panthers, and more. Food concession, a bake sale, and a wine pull will also be featured.
“Our goal is to create a fun, relaxed atmosphere where families can enjoy spending their afternoon – and know that their donations are going to a good cause,” comments Jennifer Joye, Executive Director of Lake Wylie Children’s Charity. “Of course, a big part of the day is the music, and we’re glad to have beloved DJ Big Sexy of 103.7 on hand, as well as great bands like Continental Divide, Fiftywatt Freight Train, Lipstick on a Pig, Cloud Nine, and the Shannon Warren Band.”
The proceeds from this year’s benefit concert will go to the two local children who have been “adopted” by the charity this year – Kelsey Funderburk, a 14-year-old suffering from a rare brain tumor, and Jaxon Clark, a five-year-old with Hunter Syndrome/MPS II.
Those who attend the concert will get to hear more about these brave kids, as well as learn about future LWCC fundraisers.
