Jacksboro (WVLT) -- Games, food, and music mark the first annual Reaching Out for Kids Benefit concert in Jacksboro.
The nearly six hour long event benefited Reachs, a charity for abused children that work's through the Campbell County Children's Advocacy Center.
Those who attended and the event's organizer all agree on the concert's importance.
"Since 2001, our numbers have actually double at the center and we have been able to provide additional resources to the community," said Tracie Phillips, the Chief Operating Officer of Reachs. "More than anything we want the community to know we are here, we want to encourage people to come out and visit the center."
The concert headliner was the Smoky Mountain Blue Eyed Darling, Con Hunley.
It was concluded around 10 PM with a huge fire works display over Campbell County High School's football stadium.
