The day before we left for the beach (so far behind I know!) we attended the St. Jude Concert here in Westhaven. Every year a house in Westhaven is donated to be given away in a raffle to benefit St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

To kick off this year’s fundraiser, Amy Grant and Vince Gill came out to sing a few songs and draw support. I remember listening to them as a kid and it’s amazing how music takes you back! A record of Amy Grant’s was probably the first one I ever owned and yes, I mean a record – one of those large black discs – geez I’m getting old! Listening to her sing I felt like I was back twirling in my parent’s living room in front of one of those big console record players.

Anyhoo, they did a great job and if you haven’t already, you should definitely pick up a ticket for the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway! It’s such a great cause and you might win a really cool house too! You can find out more by visiting St. Jude’s website. Here are a few pictures from the event:

Go get your ticket and come be our neighbor! :)
