Benefit For Woodmore Families
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF)- Weeks after the Woodmore Elementary school bus crash took the lives of six children, locals in our area continue to raise money for the families affected by the tragic accident.
Robin Chambers, Event Organizer: “We pulled together some of the local talent out of Chattanooga, North Georgia, Dalton and we’re coming together so we can help the uh Woodmore Elementary kids.”
Event organizer Robin Chambers says five local bands performed for free tonight in Ringgold, to help raise money for the victims of the Tally Road school bus crash.
“George over here at Cloud Springs Deli, he’s a really good guy and I thought this would be the perfect spot. So I started making phone calls and getting on Facebook and getting the groups together,” said Chambers.
There was no cover-charge to get in, but donations were welcome and a few items were also on display for a raffle, which included a very nice guitar.
“It was basically bands that wanted to um to help out um and it was kinda done in a short range of time. So I got who I could, and five bands. So that’s not too bad on short notice,” said Chambers.
Soul Shine, Mother Legacy and Dying to Live were just a few bands on the list to perform at the event, which Chambers says was just his small way of giving back to those who need it most this holiday season.
“When you see something–somebody hurting uhh… pull together, and uh try to help them in any way you can,” said Chambers.
The event ended at 11, but there’s still time to donate to the Woodmore Fund.
The United Way released this video encouraging others to continue to give throughout the month of December.
