Music fest to fund animal rescue

The 3rd Annual Steve Whiddon Music Fest will be at 6 p.m. on July 8 at the Grandview Lodge. The proceeds from this event will benefit the four animal non-profit agencies in Haywood County, Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation, Save the Animals Rescue (STAR) Ranch, HAWA Spay/Neuter and The Francis Fund. Featured artists will include The Steve Whiddon Band, Karen “Sugar” Barnes and Dave Magill, Angie Toomie, Bobby Wallace Country Classics, Susan Costine and more, plus a few big surprises.

The event will be held inside the Grandview Lodge and on the wrap-around porch. Haywood Equipment Rental is donating tents, tables, and chairs for additional space. The fish fry buffet dinner will be served following a short skit by the four animal non-profit agencies along with an introduction of animals available for adoptions.
