On Thursday, July 20th the Foundation for Mental Health held its first ever BBQ & Blues fundraising event to benefit the Mental Health Center of North Central Alabama. Over $7,000 was raised to help support services of the Mental Health Center.
There was plenty of great BBQ and the evening’s musical entertainment, Microwave Dave and the Nukes lived up to their reputation and gave a great show. David Norwood with WALW 98.3 FM was the event emcee and did a fantastic job promoting the silent auction items like the documented Super bowl helmet with Joe Namath’s signature. Foundation trustee and event coordinator, Johnny Turner, says next year’s BBQ & Blues will be event better. Stay tuned to the Foundation’s Facebook page for more information in the near future.
