Rushlow Harris-Opening act for Toby Keith

Please come and enjoy a night of great music and food (provided by Cass County’s own “Pig Out BBQ”) to support two important groups that are near and dear to many people in our community. The concert proceeds will be donated to the “Heartland Fund,” which is a fund set up at the Salvation Army that assists military families in Nebraska during deployment, and the Weeping Water Volunteer Fire and Rescue. We are very fortunate to have many sponsors to make this show possible, so please come out and support two wonderful causes and spend some time at Weeping Water’s “Limestone Days” with your family and friends.
