Zac Brown Band Co-Founder John Driskell Hopkins Hosts Holiday Concert for Camp Trach Me Away
Marietta resident and co-founding member of the Grammy award winning Zac Brown Band is hosting a holiday concert to benefit Camp Trach Me Away on Sunday, December 1, 3:00-5:30 p.m. at Heritage Sandy Springs. In addition to music from Driskell’s newly released holiday album “You Better Watch Out”, a big band Christmas collection, traditional holiday songs will be performed with collaborative musicians.
Camp Trach Me Away serves Georgia children by providing a week-long overnight camp experience to “trach” and “vent” dependent children, allowing kids with severe pulmonological disorders opportunities for socializing and to learn life skills as they engage in activities that will help them realize their full potential as individuals, encouraging a sense of independence. This year Camp Trach Me Away hosted campers of all ages at Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge, Georgia for its third year and again, at no costs to their families because of generous community support. Camp Trach Me Away has expanded to include Family Camping, Educational Conferences for Caregivers and Advocacy initiatives to assure children with trachs reach optimal independence, well-being and inclusion in the community.
John Driskell Hopkins produces an annual holiday CD and will unveil his newest music at this event, along with additional musicians and a special appearance by Angelina Hu, a violin virtuoso from Hightower Middle School who is also a camper. Camp Trach Me Away is a 100% volunteer led organization and with hard working board members and volunteers, now provides a plethora of activities. Proceeds from the concert will benefit camping and education programs.
Guests will arrive at 3:00, shop the wonderful silent auction items, enjoy the offerings of stationed food trucks, deserts, beverages and more.
