In October, Mountain Heart, Missy Raines & The New Hip, The Farewell Drifters, MilkDrive, Steel String Session, Gary Stanley Jr., Rightpath Bluegrass Band and Spatial Effects performed at the Downtown Dalton BBQ and Music Festival to raise awareness of this worthy cause.

"We can't thank all of our supporters enough" says Millie Hicks Miracle League board member. "We are so grateful for the generosity of everyone involved, but this is only the beginning--we will continue to raise funds for a handicapped accessible playground, and yearly sponsors for equipment, uniforms, etc. Thank you for all you have done!"

The Bluegrass Bands Helping Hands Volume 3 CD sells for $15 with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Miracle Field. CD's are available until December 1st at the following North Georgia locations or on-line at www.bluegrassbandshelpinghands.com .
