Haywood Community College and Champion Credit Union are once again joining forces to help people in Haywood County with heating assistance. Together they are sponsoring a Share the Warmth benefit concert on Sunday, February 12 from 2 until 5 p.m. Donations collected will go 100 percent to Mountain Projects to help area residents with heating costs. Hominy Valley Boys will host the event and will be joined by several other local bands and performers including Jonathan Valley Cloggers; Kyle Smith, Randy Mason, and friends; No Show Jones and the Wildermen Band (HCC Natural Resources students); the Ross Brothers; Sonoma Road; and Thomas Tatham. The event will be held in the HCC Auditorium.

There will be designated rooms for jamming with these bands. Bring your instruments to join in the fun.

According to Patsy Dowling, Executive Director of Mountain Projects, this year presents a bigger challenge for supplying heating aid to those who request it. Not only are there more requests and less money, there are also more first time requests than ever before.

Admission is a minimum donation of $10. Seating is limited with tickets available at Champion Credit Union and the HCC Bookstore and the HCC Foundation. There will be no snow date and no refunds. Donations are greatly appreciated.

As part of the fundraising efforts, there will also be drawings for two televisions provided by the credit union and a Confetti quilt created and donated by the HCC day quilting class.

For more information, please call the HCC Foundation at 627-4522 or Champion Credit Union at 648-1515. Donations are tax deductible and checks should be made payable to Mountain Projects.
