Tracy Lawrence charity concert Sunday

From Post staff reports

The scare that Tracy Lawrence's wife Becca had with breast cancer a few years back was cause enough for him to launch a charity event here dedicated to raising money to aid in the ongoing battle against the disease.

Last spring the country music entertainer, who makes his home in Wilson County, produced the first annual Tracy Lawrence Celebrity Golf Tournament at Five Oaks Golf and Country Club, but this year the event, still with a mission to raise funds to help battle cancer, will be a two-day affair with a concert on Sunday night before the golf tournament on Monday.

Those responsible for organizing the charity event, scheduled for Sunday, April 29, and Monday, April 30, say it's an opportunity to raise much more money than last year as more people will be involved.

Last year the tournament raised almost $13,000 for the charity, and this year the goal for is $30,000.

Joshua Lykins, assistant golf professional at Five Oaks and a principal organizer of Lawrence's event, said the entertainer is adamant about keeping it all local.
