May I have your attention please:

Some of us here in Knoxville associated with Hillbilly Savants have lately been working on a very special project. Two young ladies, Sarah Surak and Hannah Lowe as a part of Team in Training, have been raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in memory of their friend Michelle Pfeffer, who lost her battle with Leukemia last year.

To that end, this Thursday March 29 we are hosting a benefit concert at Manhattan's Bistro and Bar in Knoxville's Old City. Local band Grandpa's Stash will perform. Grandpa's Stash is a relatively new addition to Knoxville's thriving music scene. Along with its straight-ahead rock and roll set-up, the band also features a trombone that adds a different but welcome dimension to its hard-hitting rock sound. Check them out here. Admission is $5.00.

In addition to the show, between sets we will be raffling off various items, gift certificates and artwork that local businesses and artists have donated. You'll even have a chance to win a $300 travel voucher from STA Travel.

Things will get started around 9:00, so bring a friend and enjoy a great show, all the while helping out a worthy cause. If you can't come out to the show, please consider making a donation here.

I appreciate your post. I lost my sister to Leukemia five years ago and it still hurts. I walk in the Light the Night Walk in her memory. I wish good luck to Sarah and Hannah on the donation drive. Hope you raise a million bucks!
