The Wears Valley Area Chamber recently held a benefit BBQ for a local gentlemen David “Keith” Ownby who was severly burned. Mr. Ownby has two small daughters and has been in the Vanderbilt Burn Center since early March. Ownby’s parents and family have been assisting in taking care of the kids and their needs. The Chamber of Commerce heard about the families plight and decided to pitch in.
Two Chamber members were instrumental in making this event a huge success; “Wright Stuff Catering” provided the food and “Cove Creek RV Resort” provided the facility and field along 321. The family was there all day assisting a handful of the Chamber members and they raised $2,225.00 for the young man.
