Benefit Concert This Weekend

Bluegrass will meet orchestra on Saturday, as Doyle Dykes will perform with the Rappahannock Pops.

And your ticket price will go to help uninsured area residents get medical care.

The concert will be Nov. 5, 7 p.m. at Grace Church of Fredericksburg. Tickets are $15 for adults, $7.50 for children 12 and under. For $30, you can get a premier ticket and get up close and personal with the performers. To order tickets, click here.

Proceeds from the concert will go to the Fredericksburg Christian Health Center, which is trying to make up for $30,000 in funding cuts. Because of the cuts, the clinic is planning to see fewer patients this year than last. And there is a one-month wait for care.
