Local musicians will be performing live on Fountain Square in an effort to raise funds for the newly created Cecil Dye Foundation.
This event is for the Cecil Dye Foundation helping those battling cancer as well as difficult financial burdens. The Foundation was created to honor Cecil's wish to help those who battled as he did, not only against cancer but also the financial struggles associated with fighting the disease. There is no charge for attending the event and listening to the music, but there will be many opportunities to make a donation to this great cause. 100% of the net proceeds go to the foundation. The foundation is managed as a non profit 501c3. The Tunes for Tim refers to the upcoming 10th anniversary of Roy Bushman's brother and musician mentor Tim Bushman's passing from pancreatic cancer on May 25, 2005. Tim was an amazing musician, singer, and songwriter who was very popular in Cincinnati in the early 1970's and then around the Knoxville area in his later years. His widow Darlene and best friend Bruce Owen are coming up from Knoxville to perform a couple songs they used to perform with Tim.
