Big Bear Opry Special Benefit Show for Tornado Victims

Big Bears Saturday Night Opry has scheduled a Special Benefit Show for the Victims of the recent Tornado, according to Jim “Big Bear” Huff, Promoter and Manager of Big Bear’s Saturday Night Opry, in Mena. The show, scheduled for May 9th will be held at the Old Armory located on De Queen St., which was generously provided by Rich Mountain Community College.

We realize that so many families have suffered catastrophic loss from the storm and have been working tirelessly since it happened with hardly a break. At this point, 2-3 weeks afterward, the stress and worry many have experienced can really begin to wear on a body. With that in mind, we want to invite those folks to take a break, catch a breath and spend a little time relaxing while enjoying some of the areas Finest Entertainment, at no charge, simply as Guests of Big Bears Opry.

“This will likely be the biggest Show of the Year, both in terms of talent and attendance, stated Huff. We are scheduled to have a full range of music with Country, Bluegrass, Gospel and some great Classic Rock-n-Roll. Entertainers tentatively set to perform are: James Tarver, Richie Owens, Bob Dowdy and the Mountain Bluegrass Boys, Colin Cannon, Judy Buck from Glenwood, Vinnie Lee, Don Hunt from Hot Springs, Six Mile Creek, Steve Rook, Mary Caster, Lisa Tarver, John Talley, Michelle White, and a new group called Shed West.

Instead of our regular admission we will be taking donations at the door with “all” profits and donations from the show, going to benefit those most in need. For those in the community that would like to help by donating funds and haven’t known where to do so, this will be the perfect place and while here enjoy the show.

Showtime: 7:00 P.M. on May 9th, Old Armory on DeQueen St. Mena. For more information contactJim L. Huff, at (479) 394-5377 or e-mail bigbearsopry@aol.com or www.bigbearsopry.com
