• • •Reba McEntire will headline a benefit concert at Depot Square in Gallatin, Tenn. on Sunday, Nov. 30 at 6:30 p.m., to fund lung cancer research at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center. Organized by singer and lung-cancer patient Dawn Sears, the show will also feature performances by The Time Jumpers (of which Sears is a member) and Riders In The Sky.
“I am on a mission to help fund lung cancer research at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center,” states Sears. “A benefit concert is the best way I know how to do that. It is my mission to bring more hope to those of us with lung cancer. I was diagnosed with lung cancer over a year ago and I now have a greater understanding of the daily battle and challenges that people with cancer of any kind face.”
Gold-winning Olympic figure skater Scott Hamilton, a cancer survivor himself, will emcee the event.
