Sparky's 2nd Annual Crusade Concert sets new record

Beautiful fall weather, great performers push total for event to $5,000.

By Charlie Crawhorn Event Chairman, Sparky's 2nd Annual Crusade Concert

Great Turnout. I counted over 350 people here at one time during the Sparky's concert event Saturday, September 8, 2012. We raised a little over $5,000 for the WHAS Crusade for Children. That, of course, sets a new record, topping last year's $4,200 by almost 20%.

Big thanks to all the support from our great community.

- Charlie Crawhorn

Thanks, Charlie Crawhorn, for the report. What a fine tribute to an Adair County hero. What a fine way for people to enjoy the beautiful facilities at the Adair County Fairground. -EW
