To the editor:
As the nation reels from another senseless act of violence, it helps me to focus on what is uplifting in our world. On Saturday, Aug. 4, I represented Hospice Volunteers of Somerset County at a benefit concert to raise funds for cancer survivors and hospice.
Local musician Danny Taylor donated his time and talent and the venue was the Happy Horseshoe Campground in Lexington. Judy and Buster Pinkham are owners of the campground and readily embraced Danny’s concert idea and provided the space and many of the attendees.
While I don’t have the final numbers, I do know that the event raised over $3500—all of which will benefit organizations in Kennebec, Franklin and Somerset County.
Besides the wonderful music, the event featured a silent auction and a robust 50/50.
I want to thank all the people that worked on this event—you provided a bright light of caring and concern and have helped HVSC to continue to provide our services to those in need.
