Benefit held for accident victims’ family



The Celebration of Life will include a concert by Terry Bailey, a country gospel singer; Nate Kennedy, a guitarist; Allene Adams & Coco, a ventriloquist act; 2 Shots, a band; and Kreigh Hurst, an illusionist.

Sam Anderson from Studio Z will also be hosting a Zumba class. There will be a cornhole tournament as well as a bounce house, face painting, and a food truck.

The fundraising will come from a charge for the Zumba class, games for the children, a 50/50 raffle, a silent auction, and any donations that people make.

Nichols said there is a long list of sponsors for the event including Harley West, Harley South, Baymont Hotel, Indiana Fever, Crooked Stick Golf Course, Hooters, BW3’S, Dave & Busters, and Crackers.

“The list just goes on and on,” she said. “Those are just some of the big names. Primo donated a room that seats 300 people, the tables and chairs, and part of their parking lot for the event.”

Nichols said she has enjoyed organizing the event and is hoping the community comes out to support the family on Oct. 6.

“I’m so blessed God picked me to do this for them,” Nichols said. “I know my life has changed.”

Donations for the family may also be made through a PayPal account on the “Celebration of Life - Matthew Sneed” Facebook page.
