Jenny Price Mason Benefit

On March 14, the town of Lynchburg, Tenn., is hosting a celebration benefit for the family of Jenny Price Mason to celebrate her life. Mason was a beloved science teacher at Moore County Middle School who passed away on Feb. 2, 2009. She passed away at St. Thomas Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn., due to complications of a lung infection. Mason was 32 years old, the wife of David “Buddy” Mason and the loving mother of two small children, Olivia and Noah.

The celebration benefit is going to take place at Moore County High School and consists of games for all ages, a barbecue meal and an auction. All proceeds will go to the family to help pay for the weeklong struggle in the hospital and hopefully enough will be made to assist in the financial needs of raising two young children.

Games begin at 3 p.m., with the auction full of fabulous items starting at 6 p.m. Concessions will be available with the barbecue meal beginning at 4:40 p.m. Bluegrass music will be provided by Jeff Cates, Dusty and Daniel Hardin and others throughout the event.

Donations are welcomed. Please make checks payable to the Jenny Mason Fund and send to Moore County High School attention Rita Watkins at 1502 Highway 55 Lynchburg, Tenn., 37352. For more information, contact event coordinator Bonnie Lewis at 931-580-3238 or
