AUGUSTA, GA.--An annual country music concert pays off in a big way.
Monday morning the Beasley Broadcasting Group presented a check to United Way of the CSRA from the "2007 Million Pennies for Kids Guitar Pull."
Ms. LaVerne Gold, President and Chief Executive Officer of United Way accepted a check for $24,400.
Ms. Gold says, “We are so appreciative of Kent Dunn and Beasley Broadcasting for this gift as these funds will be used by partnering health and human service agencies in our community to help individuals and families who are in need of assistance.”
Every year Nashville's biggest stars give their time to help people through the area.
Past entertainers include Rascal Flatts, Dierks Bentley, Jo Dee Messina, Trace Adkins along with other big name singers.
Beasley Broadcasting's General Manager Kent Dunn says he hopes to do even better next year.
United Way provides funding for more than 60 health and human service programs throughout the CSRA.
United Way and its partner agencies serve Richmond, Columbia, Burke, Lincoln, Wilkes, Taliaferro, and Glascock counties, and communities in Warren, Jefferson, Emanuel, Jenkins, and McDuffie Counties.
Services also extend to communities in Aiken, Edgefield and McCormick counties in South Carolina.
