SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE, Va. (WFXR) — The ‘Harmony 4 Hope‘ charity is hosting an all-day music concert, raising money and awareness for the Lymphoma Research Foundation on June 11.

The concert will kick off at 11 a.m. on Sunday at Mango’s Bar & Grill at Smith Mountain Lake. A few local artists including Kimberley Dahme, Jason Long, Papa Thump, and Big Daddy Ray, will take the spotlight.

Through this event, Harmony 4 Hope is looking to raise $100,000 to fund Lymphoma research initiatives and support patients and families who are affected by the disease. So far, they have raised $36,000.

But for many, this event is more than just a fundraiser.

Patricia Willett, from Harmony 4 Hope, says when she first heard about the event, she was ready to help.

“I got interested when I found out and said, ‘I want to be a part of this.’ Because a lot of family and friends of mine has passed away from the same thing,” said Willett.

One local artist that will take the stage, Jason Long, shared his dad was diagnosed with Lymphoma in 2003, and a few years later, he passed away. He said when he got the call to perform, he was happy.

From rock to county music, Mango’s Bar and Grill will be filled with a variety of music to enjoy. Plus, WFXR’s very own Chief Meteorologist John Carroll is emceeing the event!

To give you a sneak peek of what you can expect, Long joined WFXR’s Evan Johnson and Amanda Kenney on ‘Good Day Virginia’ for a quick show.
