Sweetwater Grill raised more than $15,000 for a local child with cancer Sunday from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
“The parents were super grateful and are very deserving of this,” said owner Chris Young.
Donations of $10 were taken at the door for Dizzy Fest, which included live performances by The Marcus Lindsey Band, The Rodd Grimes Band, The All Fingers Band, Bad Moon Rising and Kenny Martin Band, with acoustic sets by Scott and Jacob Cowen, Zach Romo and Kylie Mac.
“We also had a live auction and T-shirts for sale,” Young said. “One-hundred percent of the proceeds went to the Landrie Lay family. We love hunt county and I am a graduate of Quinlan Ford. We hosted a Guns and Hoses – for police and fire injured in the line of duty – event last month and two events benefiting the Union Valley Fire Department and the Cash Fire Department when they had their fire engine wrecked a few years back. We are here to grow our community and give back when it’s an option.”
Landrie was diagnosed with MDS, a rare bone marrow cancer. Only 1-2 out of a million children are diagnosed with it, her mother said. Landrie has been dealing with this cancer since she was 13 months old.
