(SAVANNAH, GA) “Bands for Bama” a fund raiser June 5, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SAVANNAH, GA — The

region’s top bands will headline

an afternoon filled with

festivities for all ages as The

Savannah Bama Club unites with

local businesses to raise funds for

the tornado victims of Alabama’s

hardest hit areas. The city’s most

iconic symbol of hospitality, The

Waving Girl, will mark the spot for the June 5 event, “Bands for Bama,” orchestrated by

more than 100 members of the club who have been working behind the scenes for the

past few weeks.

Organizers say the lush riverfront setting at Morrell Park will provide a picturesque stage

for food, fun, and some of the area’s most tempting local fare, and proceeds from

admissions and concessions will go directly to the Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund of

Alabama (GERF). Local bands including Junkyard Angel, Wormsloe, Southern Tide

Bluegrass Band, and Jeff Beasley, will be playing throughout the afternoon. A silent

auction will be ongoing and items included in the auction are an impressive array of

signed sports memorabilia, resort packages, restaurant gift certificates, and more! A

variety of children’s activities — from face painting to Silly Dilly the Clown and a

bounce castle — will round out the event’s family theme.

Admission is $30 for families and $15 per person (half price with Military ID). Children

under the age of 12 are admitted free. All proceeds are 100 percent tax deductible and

checks should be made out to Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund of Alabama. Tickets

are available the day of the event at the gate. Visit the Facebook page at Savannah-Bama

Aid for more information. Contact Michael Taylor, president of the Savannah Bama

Club, at taylorme@comcast.net, or by calling, (912) 441-1168, to make a donation.
