Neal McCoy has been Added to the Van Zandt County Twister Relief Concert in Ben Wheeler Sunday
Sunday, May 28, join many fellow East Texans at Pickin' Porch Park in Ben Wheeler for a day of music and help for the victims of the April 29th tornadoes that ripped through Van Zandt County.
In addition to the lineup of great local artists, it was announced earlier this week that Neal McCoy will be performing Sunday afternoon at 3.
Neal is no stranger to helping East Texans. His East Texas Angel Network concert has been going strong since 1995 helping families stay on their feet while taking care of their sick children.
In addition to Neal, well known East Texas artists performing will be Canton natives Jeff Allen and Wesley Pruitt Band, Shreveport's Blacktop Gypsy and many, many more.
In addition to the great music, your kids will be entertained with bounce houses along with a great magic show from Johnny Magic. There will also be a silent auction.
Food trucks will be on site but you can also head across the street to Moore's Store or The Forge Bar & Grill for some vittles.
Admission is free, but a $20 donation per person at the gate will go a long way to helping those that are recovering. All funds raised will go to the Van Zandt County Tornado Relief Fund set up at First State Bank of Ben Wheeler.
Welsey Pruitt, of the Wesley Pruitt Band, one of the organizers of the event said, "Canton is my hometown. Personally, this has been so heartbreaking and emotional. The whole town went dark that night. There was no light anywhere except for emergency responders. Wanting to help in the days to come I knew that musicians could be a much-needed light for so many."
