The sixth annual Bull Run Charity Music Fest will take place on Saturday, Aug. 1 at 1601 Bull Run Rd.
The event is a one-day music festival with all proceeds going to charity. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.
Though a complete line-up of musical performances is not yet available, some groups have already confirmed their attendance. Salvage Town and Carousel Stampede are two bands that will perform. Regional acts from across the state as well as some from Indiana and Tennessee are also expected.
In the past five years, the charity has raised more than $40,000. Last year alone they were able to raise $12,000. In the past, the money has been given to charitable organizations such as the WHAS Crusade for Children and Relay for Life.
This year, however, some changes are being made. The money raised at this year’s event will all be staying local. Easton Bryant, the event’s organizer, believes the larger charities that have been donated to in the past are doing great things, but this fundraiser should benefit our own community members.
“Columbia/Adair County is full of people that give so much. This is now going to be an event where we help each other, because there are enough needs that go on throughout the year in our own community.”
Funds will be allocated throughout the year to various beneficiaries in the community. A committee of five people from different parts of the county will decide which families receive donations. The money will be given to victims of traumatic injury, natural disaster, loss of home, etc. to cover various expenses.
Sponsors are asked to donate $50, and their name or business will be listed on t-shirts and event banner. Auction item donations are also needed.
Checks should be mailed to 3058 Campbellsville Rd. with reference to Bull Run Charity Music Fest. For more information, email Easton Bryant at easton@salvagetownmusic. com.
