Gary Hogue Benefit Concert
Several of Gary's friends got
together and held a benefit concert in Gary's honor.
Howard Decker and his band performed. The bluegrass
group, WhiteWater, featuring Greg and Brad Davis and
Randy Childers also performed. Marty's Rock & Roll
Cowboy band also did a couple of songs with guest
singers. All in all, it was a fabulous afternoon.
Lots of items were donated and auctioned off. Autographed CDs, pictures, a leather outfit from LeAnn Rimes, a beautiful fringed denim jacket by Emmylou Harris. George Jones had signed a guitar and Marty and the Rock & Roll Cowboys also signed a guitar. The entire event raised $3,000.
There was a huge dance floor and a few of the attendees danced. Marty's fans showed up: Cindy Allred, Shelby Jean Gootee, Tami Krato, Margie Sullivan, Mary Runyan, Judy Trickett, Evelyn Totty, Gary, Barbara and Melanie Renfro.
This warm, sunny afternoon of music was for Nikki and Elliott. It was good seeing a smile on Nikki's face and she was invited out on the dance floor by several gentlemen. She even tried to teach Elliott some dance steps.
