More Flood Benefits

13466506_1713094435579571_1057011275077961809_nWe have a few more benefits to report on. These are all to help the victims of the devastating floods that hit West Virginia last week.

Monday, July 4, APTiming will put on a free race at Kanwha State Forest in hopes that they can collect and raise donations to support those that were affected by the recent flooding. The race is completely free! They will be selling shirts and if you would like to order one, you may do so upon checking out. If they run out on race day, they plan to make a second order and mail it to you.

In addition, they will be collecting DONATIONS for Mountain Mission (their flood relief fund). You can donate money, water, food, cleaning supplies, animal food, etc…anything to help those in need. You may register online or on race day. Check out the event page at Facebook for more details.




Saturday at 7 PM at the Pinch Reunion in Pinch, an evening of music will be presented to help relieve some of the agony suffered during and after the flood. Donations will be accepted (Cash, Cleaning Supplies, and Toiletries needed). There will be free music and free food (Hot Dogs, Chips, and Water). The organizers tell us, “If you can donate, please come out and help. If you are hungry, come out and eat. If you just need a break, come out and be entertained.”

The Performers:
7:00- Scott Straight
8:00- Aaron Fisher
9:00- Ken Starcher



On July 9 and 10, at the South Charleston First Church of the Nazarene, CharCon will hold a special event to raise money for gamers affected by the flooding.

From the event page: “Gamers helping gamers! Join us for this game day where we will play lots of games & hopefully raise enough funds to help those from our community impacted by the recent flooding. We will accept donations, have concessions, prizes, an auction and who knows what else. If you know of someone who is part of our gamer community that was impacted by the flooding, please private message us with details.”


Saturday July 9 at 9 PM, Grumpy’s Waterfront will present a special benefit show. The Mikele Buck Band along with The Needful Things will be hosting a Benefit concert to raise money for the Flood victims along the Elk River. All proceeds from the door( $10) going to LERMA (Lower Elk River Ministerial association) for the familys in need.

    Wow, Rudy, did you ever expect PopCult to take this serious a turn? But I’m very pleased that these events are doing what they can to provide assistance.
