Transplant fundraiser for Weaver set


Special to Atmore News

Nashville recording artist Ricky Crook and his Horseshoe Halo band will perform at a Saturday, September 14, benefit to help defray costs of an impending kidney transplant for a Poarch Creek Indians Tribal Police officer.
The benefit, for Atmore resident Jeffrey Weaver, will take place at the Pow Wow Pavilion, 5811 Jack Springs Road, on the PCI reservation. The event will kick off at 11 a.m. and will last throughout the day.
Several items will be auctioned off during the afternoon, and children can enjoy a bounce house and slide that will be provided by Bounce of the South Rentals.
Crook will not only perform but will donate the proceeds from sales of all Ricky Crook Music shirts and caps.
Catfish plates will be sold and served for $8 each. The meals will also include Cole slaw, hush puppies, baked beans and a drink. To pre-order plates, call 251-744-4107 or 251-294-1672.
Everyone is urged to come out and support this worthy cause.
