‘Saving Haywood One House at a Time’ benefit concert and cookout to take place at Alley Kats in Waynesville

Press Release

From Alley Kats Tavern in Waynesville:

Sunday, September 7th, Alley Kats will hold a benefit concert to help three families from the Haywood County Community that are in immediate danger of losing their homes. These families include an elderly woman with large medical expenses, a single mother of two, and a family with disabilities.

Ms. Brooks along with many others are able to relate to the fear of losing one’s home and not knowing where to turn, therefore, 100% of the profit from this event will be donated to the three families. The funds will be used to either pay their mortgages current, or allow the time needed for a loan modification. Checks will be made out directly to the loan holders.

The Concert will be at Alley Kats on Sunday, September 7th from 1pm to 7pm. Alley Kats is located at 154 Hemlock Street, Waynesville, NC.

At this family-friendly event they will be serving hamburgers, hotdogs, and nachos. A variety of local singers and songwriters will be showcased.

They are requesting donations for raffles, and old cars that can be sold for scrap. You can contact 828-226-1657 for more information or to volunteer your services.
