Calendar Pick: Project.Safe.Christmas


A Christmas concert will be held on Dec. 21 to benefit Project Safe, a nonprofit dedicated to aiding and supporting survivors of domestic violence. The concert will feature the talents of The Priestie Boys, gospel singers Reginald Willis and Eric Johnson (both of the Athens Voices of Truth), Claire Campbell, R&B singer Andreana Williams, soul singer Todd Burton and singer-guitarist Tommy Jordan. Alzena and Shawanda Johnson will emcee the night, and musicians Micah Lewis, Mindy Towe, Sally Coenen and Dick Daniels will accompany the singers. The event is put on by Patricia and Neal Priest, and Neal will play alongside his brother and father in the family band The Priestie Boys. Having seen the brutality of domestic violence first-hand working as a physician at St. Mary’s ER, Neal teamed up with Project Safe to devise the concert, which raises money for the organization. The night will also feature a silent auction and dinner and dessert for sale.
