Benefit For Knick Burton



A benefit for Knick Burton will be held on Saturday, May 2.  Knick is the son of Ricky and Tammy Burton of Shelbyville.  Ricky is a well know farrier in Tennessee. 

Knick was badly injured on February 19, 2009 when he was involved in an explosion that left him badly burned.  The medical bills have reached approximately 4 million dollars and the medical insurance will only pay 80%.  Their insurance will not cover the creams and gauze needed for his recovery.

Everyone is invited to enjoy great music by The Cavaliers Quartet, good BBQ, and auction to help raise money for the Burton Family. 

Monetary donations may be made to The Knick Burton Fund at Heritage South Bank of Shelbyville.  Donations are also needed for the auction.  If you have items to donate, please contact Laura Brewer at (931)581-9947. If no answer, leave a message and you will be contacted.

Benefit to be held at The People's Church, 1890 Madison Street, Shelbyville, TN  37160 beginning at 5:30 p.m.
