The Floyd County Community Foundation is hosting an outdoor concert this weekend to raise funds to build a new animal shelter in Floyd County.
The foundation, an affiliate of the Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky in Hazard, is hosting its first “Sunny Side Mountain Jam” at the Jenny Wiley Amphitheatre at Jenny Wiley State Resort Park on Sunday, May 19.
The music will begin at 2 p.m. and last throughout the evening, with several local bands taking the stage, including Turning Ground of Salyersville, Kristi Stanley & Running Blind of Virginia, Nathan and Chesi Arnett Music, Laid Back Country Picker of Magoffin County, Col. James Hall and Chad Hall.
The fundraiser is welcome news to officials at the Floyd County Animal Shelter, which has been in disrepair for years. Shelter volunteers have sought funding in the past for a new building, but the funding goal was never met.
Tickets for the concert are $18 in advance and $20 on the day of the show.
