Preparations are underway for the 2018 Bless Your Heart Dinner and Show to benefit the Harnett Health Foundation. The benefit is scheduled for Friday, October 12, at 6:30pm, Saturday, October 13, at 6:00pm, and Sunday, October 14th at 1pm.

Several sponsorship opportunities as well as tickets are now available for purchase. Proceeds go to help the Foundation support local community initiatives. Foundation Director Craig Lloyd stated that money raised last year is already being put to good use.

“We hope to exceed our record from last year to continue helping the Foundation provide care for our neighbors and loved ones in Harnett County”

In 2016, Paige Johnson and Country on the Outskirts of Town began supporting the work of the Foundation with an annual benefit. “’Bless Your Heart’ was inspired by the love the Foundation has for advancing healthcare in Harnett County and, of course, southern charm”, said Lloyd.

Each night, the show will begin with a catered buffet featuring local cuisine followed by The Outskirts Band’s two-hour live performance of many favorite country classics, gospel tunes, bluegrass, and beach music. The benefit will be held at Johnson Properties at 48 Progressive Parkway in Angier.
