Whitesburg benefit concert raises money for paralyzed man

WHITESBURG, Ky (WYMT) - If you are looking for something to do Friday night, you might head over to Whitesburg. Starting at seven, Summit City Lounge will host a benefit concert for a man paralyzed following a motorcycle accident in 2013.

When Sarah Moracher heard what happened to Marty Keith back in October, she knew she had to do something.

"They have got five children and we are trying to get their home wheel chair accessible and medical supplies there so we can get their daddy back home to them," said Moracher.

She took to Facebook and organized the Prayers for Marty and Vicki Keith Benefit Concert. She hopes five bands, which include Contemporary Friends, Bridgekid, the Pompey Stompey, Van Lear Black and Yoho Buffalo, will be enough to fill their venue.

"Being a DJ on the radio, I have got more ways to communicate with people. Therefore, I am like we can do a concert. We can totally help these people," said Moracher.

To raise money for the family, organizers are asking for a $10.00 donation when you come in the doors at Summit City
Lounge.

"To have their daddy home on a regular basis is our main goal," said Moracher.

Jamie Hunt is in the band Pompey Stompey. He tells WYMT he is proud to be a part of such a great cause.

"It will mean a lot to me. It will just be really self satisfying to know that I have helped somebody in need," said Hunt.

Moracher asks anyone with some free time to stop by.

"Music is the way that it rolls, it really is. Come out, enjoy yourself. Drink a pop, drink a beer, it does not matter. Every little penny counts. It is just going to be a good time," said Moracher.

As we already mentioned, the show starts tonight at seven. All donations will go directly to the Keith family to make their home wheel chair accessible.
