Tickets available for benefit concert
ARDMORE — Tickets go on sale today for Willie Nelson’s April 22 concert at the Heritage Hall in Ardmore for a show that will benefit Carter County’s tornado victims.
Proceeds from a guitar auction, tips, and concessions will be placed in a trust fund at The First National Bank for victims of the Feb. 10 tornado, which claimed eight lives. The idea is the brainchild of Aubry Harris, the show’s promoter and owner of Two Frogs Grill. Harris raised nearly $19,000 for victims during a March 14 benefit concert.
"This is our restaurant’s 16th anniversary of being in business, and so this concert was already planned,” Harris said. "We just thought why not also roll into a fundraiser for the tornado victims. I bet we’ll raise between $5,000 and $6,000 on just Willie alone.”
Tickets can be purchased by calling Two Frogs Grill at (580) 226-3764 or at www.ticketstorm.com.
