The annual Pink is the Color of Hope cancer benefit concert is coming to South Jackson Civic Center on Saturday, Feb. 29 beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Troy Durm and the band Yesterday’s Wine will be back with their traditional concert of classic country music with rock ‘n’ roll mixed in.
Yesterday’s Wine Band members include Marty Scott, JD Honea, Connor Austell, Lorne Wilde, Chris Thompson, Rodney Posey, and Troy Durm.
“As many Tullahomans know from the past shows we’ve done, this is very important to me in so many ways. Troy lost his wife, Andrea, October 13th 2016, to metastatic breast cancer. This show is in honor of her fight of this horrible disease and in her memory,” Coleen Saunders with South Jackson said. “The money we raise is going to stay local, to help folks around our surrounding counties. I’m going to use the money to purchase gas cards and food cards and for some of the local churches to distribute to those in need.”
There will be a silent auction lasting until the end of the show. At that time, the for-auction pieces will be presented to the winning bidders.
Bidders must be prepared to pay for their item with cash or a check made payable to Troy Durm at the end of the show.
Admission is $20 per seat, with $10 going to South Jackson and $10 towards the Pink is the Color of Hope benefit. All money raised during the silent auction will go to the Pink is The Color of Hope benefit.
“Thank you to everyone from the past shows that have shown support. Help us spread the word this year and let’s fill every seat in the civic center,” Saunders said.
Tickets can be purchased by calling the South Jackson Civic Center at 455-5321 or online at www.southjackson.org/reservations.
