Benefit raises $11,000 for Beth Bess

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

The Slaying The Dragon: Leukemia benefit for Beth McEntire Bess was held Oct. 16 at the A.L. Hudson Activity Center and raised nearly $11,000 for Bess' medical and living expenses. The event was well attended with a silent auction and various bands performing. The benefit ended with a touching group performance of all the bands leaving scarcely a dry eye in the house. Bess was diagnosed with leukemia and is currently undergoing treatment as she battles the disease at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock.
