Bluegrass Festival brings entertainment for a good cause
Eighth annual celebration benefits children in San Angelo
The Concho Valley Home for Girls/Children's Emergency Shelter will hold its eighth annual Bluegrass Festival on Friday, April 11, and Saturday, April 12.
The Bluegrass Festival, which will be held at the Wells Fargo Pavilion, includes music, vendors and a silent auction. This is both an opportunity to raise money for the Concho Valley Home for Girls/Children's Emergency Shelter and an opportunity for ASU students to volunteer.
"I am very excited to volunteer at the Bluegrass Festival," senior Rachel Riggs said." "I have enjoyed working with Sammye and Georgia, and I look forward to seeing all the different bluegrass bands."
Some bands that are lined up to play at the Bluegrass Festival include Triple L, Concho Grass, Kody Norris, the Batten Family Band, and Willow Bend.
Concho Valley Home for Girls began in 1973.
It offers girls from troubled homes a safe place to live. Residents are usually 14 years old or older and attend school while living in the home.
They also have household chores that help them understand the tasks involved in having your own home. The Concho Valley Home for Girls provides the girls a home environment with everyday family activities.
The Children's Emergency Shelter was founded in 1978, but didn't become part of this agency until 1996. The Children's Emergency Shelter cares for both boys and girls from newborn to 17 years of age. The shelter is open 24 hours, 365 days a year. If a child's records are available, then school-aged children are enrolled in school. The shelter works hard to help the children feel safe and nurtured. Clothes, tutoring and birthday and Christmas gifts are provided to the children from the home.
"I really enjoy being able to help out at the Bluegrass Festival," senior David Moon said. "I have been helping my mom, Cindy Moon, cook at the Bluegrass Festival for the past five years, and have found it to be one of the most rewarding experiences."
Doors open Friday from 4:30p.m. To 9:30p.m. On Saturday, the doors are open from 11:00p.m. to 9:30p.m. The cost is $10 for Friday, $18 for Saturday, or $25 for both nights. Kids under age 14 enter for free.
