Millie Hicks and John CowanDalton, Georgia -- The Miracle League of Whitfield County (Georgia), a non-profit organization, will receive a grant in the amount of $1,000 from Bluegrass Bands Helping Hands. The grant amount represents the concert proceeds from last Saturday's performance featuring "new grass" singer John Cowan at the Dalton Freight Depot and will be distributed by The Community Foundation of N.W. Georgia.

"The Miracle Field is currently under construction and we look forward to playing ball in September" states Millie Hicks, Miracle League Advisory member. "The money raised by the show will go towards the purchase of uniforms and equipment to help get the league started. We want the Miracle League players to have a full baseball experience. We are so thankful to Bluegrass Bands Helping Hands and their continuing and faithful support."

"We could not do this without the support of our community and especially our underwriting sponsors and performers," says Paul Byrum, Event Coordinator. "Our concert was sponsored in part by the generous support of David Aft & Pauline Melton, The Downtown Dalton Development Authority, Masingill Clean Air and The Community Foundation of N.W. Georgia. I am very fortunate to have the support of individuals interested in connecting our passion (for music) with purpose".
