NASHVILLE, TENN. (October 8, 2010)—Dailey & Vincent are proud to announce that their inaugural Homecoming Concert at the Jackson County High School Football Field in Gainesboro, Tennessee, on October 2 raised $31,693.50 for the Dailey & Vincent Helping Hands Fund.
The Dailey & Vincent Helping Hands Fund, administered through the Cookeville Regional Medical Center Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, exists to provide financial assistance to disadvantaged children of Tennessee’s Jackson and DeKalb Counties to meet immediate medical, nutritional and educational needs not covered by insurance or other means, while acknowledging the God-given gifts, potential and dignity of each child. Funds raised at the concert, attended by over 2,000 people, will be divided evenly for use in Jackson and DeKalb Counties.
The Quebe Sisters Band opened the show, which was emceed by WSM air personality and Opry announcer Eddie Stubbs.
Dailey & Vincent, who last week claimed their third consecutive Entertainer of the Year title at the International Bluegrass Music Awards, along with Vocal Group and Album of the Year, are quick to credit the homecoming concert’s supporters and volunteers. “We want to thank everyone who supported the concert by buying a ticket or making a donation. We’re extremely thankful to Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® and to Bill Carter and the Rector High School Helping Hands Foundation of Rector, Arkansas, for covering the costs of putting on the concert,” said Jamie Dailey.
“Because of their generosity, 100 percent of the ticket sales and other donations went directly into the fund,” added Darrin Vincent. “And we couldn’t have staged an event like this without the help of a dedicated team of volunteers, so we want to thank them, as well.”
Prior to the concert, Jackson County Mayor John Cason and Gainesboro Mayor John Fox read a proclamation declaring October 2, 2010 as Dailey & Vincent Day in Jackson County and the town of Gainesboro.
