Newnan Junior Service League benefit March 22

The Newnan Junior Service League will host its eighth annual benefit concert March 22.

The concert, featuring Leonard Washington and Newnan City Limits, will be held at the Alamo in downtown Newnan at 8 p.m.

The concert also includes a silent auction for more than 50 items ranging from duffle bags to gift certificates to weekend stays at hotels and lodges.

Tickets are available for purchase on NJSL webpage, . Tickets are $50 each.

“Attending our benefit concert is a great way to have fun while supporting your community,” said Ami Elder, concert chair. “To Have Leonard Washington and Newnan City Limits, and a wonderful silent auction all under one roof is something we are very excited about. We hope our community is excited about it, as well and that they will come out and help us raise lots of money at this event.”

The fundraiser benefits the following charities: Rowe Together, which serves family caregivers who are caring for a loved one that is living with dementia; American Red Cross-Georgia Three Rivers Chapter, which provides disaster response services to victims of single-family fires, including food, clothing and a safe place to stay for families devastated by disaster in Coweta County; Ronald McDonald House charities of West Georgia, a “home-away-from-home” for families to stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost; and Newnan-Coweta Lions Club, which provides eye exams and eyeglasses for residents of Coweta County, with an emphasis for those below the poverty line.
