We are still so humbled by everyones generosity from the other weekend. Not only did our shows go off better than expected, but we were able to raise over $50,000 for MUSC Children's Hospital. If that doesn't just warm your heart, then we don't know what will. We'd like to extend a huge thank you to our sponsors who made this all happen: --the fans who showed up, without whom none of this would be possible, many of whom made donations at the Music Hall the night of the show; --our first generation of sponsors, starting with our presenting sponsor TITO'S HANDMADE VODKA....also TACO BELL (JEM Restaurant Group), Max Sparwasser Law Firm LLC, Capitol Materials Coastal, Homegrown Hospitality Group (TBonz, Pearlz, Liberty, etc), Southwind Homes of Charleston, Richard B. Homes CPA LLC, Food for the Southern Soul (Jimmy Hagood), Opal/Langdon's (Patrick Owens), and Finz Bar & Grill; --an anonymous donor who matched the 25k we raised, making our total 50k; --the Charleston Music Hall, including Charles Carmody, Nick, Andrew Higdon (sound production)

Some people won’t believe it when you tell them white squirrels exist. We weren’t so sure ourselves until we saw our first one. A relative of the gray Eastern tree squirrel, white squirrels are thriving in Brevard, NC accounting for an all-time high of 40% of the Eastern tree squirrel population. This particular species of squirrel made its way to Brevard in 1949 as a result of a carnival wreck in central Florida and the town is gearing up for their 10th annual celebration of this unique wildlife population.
This nutty Memorial Day Weekend festival has a little bit for everyone. The 2014 festival kicks off Friday night with Love Canon followed by George Porter, Jr. and the Runnin’ Pardners in a free concert Throughout the weekend, bands like Scythian, the Jeff Sipe Trio, Shannon Whitworth, and many others are performing live and for FREE.
The family fun continues with a memorial parade organized by the American Legion on Saturday morning at 9 a.m., followed by a Presentation of the Wreath at the county courthouse War Memorial at 10 a.m.
Thrill-seekers will enjoy the 8th Annual Squirrel Box Derby in which creatively-designed derby karts race down Jailhouse Hill clocking in at 35mph or more. Races are open to kids 8-11 and 12-17, adults and businesses. Contestants compete for trophies awarded for the fastest critter and nuttiest design and the Golden Nut which is awarded to the local business with the best overall speed and design.
For those who are still skeptics, attendees will have a chance to meet Pisgah Pete, a rescued white squirrel, who will make his annual appearance at the festival. In addition, festival goers can learn more about how white squirrels live and what we can do to help rehabilitate wounded or rescued squirrels.
Additional events include the 6th Annual White Squirrel 5K/10K foot race, the White Squirrel Photo Contest, the White Squirrel Dance-off and street festival. This Memorial Day Weekend, there will be plenty of nutty fun for everyone in Brevard.
