KELLIE PICKLER, HOUSTON COUNTY & MATT KENNON
HELP RAISE OVER 8,825 POUNDS OF FOOD
ALONG WITH $16,366 FOR ALABAMA FOOD BANK
 
DOTHAN, Ala. – This past weekend, Kellie Pickler headlined a Country Crossing-sponsored concert at the Dothan Civic Center that benefited the Wiregrass Area United Way Food Bank. Matt Kennon and Houston County, who hail from the Dothan area, also performed.
 
The majority of the tickets for the concert were distributed through the Wiregrass Area United Way Food Bank, raising $16,366 and 8,825 pounds of food to be distributed to the Wiregrass area this holiday season. These donations translate to 92,134 meals that will be made available to those in need.
 
“This is a great day,” says Ronnie Gilley, president, Ronnie Gilley Entertainment and developer of Country Crossing. “It’s hard to put into words how happy we are to be able to fulfill our promise to give back to the community. The money and food raised through this concert will go along way, and there’s more to come. Country Crossing will continue to give back to the community as we move forward with the project.”
 
The Wiregrass Area United Way Food Bank is a non-profit, hunger relief charity that collects surplus food and distributes to agencies in a five-county service area that includes Houston, Henry, Dale, Geneva and Coffee counties, as well as parts of northwest Florida and southwest Georgia.
 
Julie Gonzalez, special projects coordinator, Wiregrass Area United Way Food Bank, says “We were thrilled that Country Crossing partnered with us for this event. The amount of money and food raised will help feed 92,134 people in our area. We are blessed to have this opportunity.”
 
The concert was originally planned to be the first concert at Country Crossing’s Celebrity Station Amphitheater. Because of inclement weather, the show was moved to the Dothan Civic Center. A debut show for the venue is being planned and an announcement will be made at a later date.
