In Lynnville, we believe you should help your neighbor when you can, so when our neighbors just tothe north called, we were proud to help sponsor the 4thAnnual The Stars Go Blue for Colon Cancer concert held March 6, 2012. Proceeds from this benefit concert and silent auction benefit the Blue Note Fund, a Colon Cancer Alliance program designed to provide financial assistance to colon cancer patients in need.
Grammy-nominated producer, artist and musician, Charlie Kelley and wife, GAC host Nan Kelley, established The Stars Go Blue concert when he was diagnosed with colon cancer after a routine screening at age 40.

The benefit also included a silent auction featuring a signed Alan Jackson guitar and an on-set experience at GAC TV (Great American Country).
To date the Blue Note Fund has awarded $125,000 to 400 patients in need. “When you’re fighting cancer, the last thing you want to think about is a bill you can’t pay,” says Kelley. “The Blue Note Fund is our way to help others who are going through tough emotional and financial times.” I tip my hat to Charlie and Nan for their neighborly dedication and appreciate them letting us be a part of such a meaningful event.
