Musical benefit planned Saturday in Halifax

The community will be “Rockin for Robyn” Saturday from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Farmer’s Market in Halifax.

The benefit will be held in honor of Robyn Robbins, and all proceeds raised at the benefit will go toward offsetting medical bills.

According to his wife, Susi, Robyn took a fall from the roof of their Mt. Laurel home Feb. 4 while he was trying to repair some shingles that had been blown off following a bad windstorm the week before.

“We’re usually the ones giving the benefits for other people,” said Susi, but this time it’s the Robbins who can use a helping hand.

Robyn had no insurance at the time of his fall, his wife said.

However, she is quick to add, “We’ve been blessed, and this has become our testimony for the experience.”

The public is invited to bring their lawn chairs and listen to the bands perform. The Hot Damn Band, Improbable Cause, Aces and Eights, Romesco, James Lester and Ronald Bowles will perform throughout the day and an open jam session will take place from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Any other band wishing to perform is urged to contact Eddie Elliott at 222-8743.

Kountry Katering will be on site selling food including barbecue, bologna burgers, hot dogs, hamburgers, fish, soft drinks and water.

Raffle tickets will be on sell for $5 for a chance to win four tickets to the Camping World Truck Series race, pit passes, meet and greet and hotel room for one night.

The drawing will be held July 1.

A silent auction will be held featuring donated items, and those wishing to donate items to the auction are asked to have them at the event between 1 and 2 p.m.

This will be a rain or shine event.
