The fundraiser, now in its second year, will feature several North Carolina natives, including Clayton Idol winner (and Garner Magnet High School student) Scott McCreery, and country singers Jason Michael Carroll and Kevin Lee.

Jimmy Weaver will be the emcee and Heather Britt Weaver will sing the national anthem. Both are from Garner and are members of the party band Back N Time. Children’s entertainment, including carnival games and arts and crafts, will be provided by magician Michael Creech and Sybil the Clown.

A pre-sale ticket price of $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and military (must present valid ID at the door) and $5 for children ages 6 to 12 will be available until April 1 through etix.com.  Children 5 and under are free.

Brittany’s Battle provides support for individuals and families affected by cancer. It was founded in honor of Brittany Coppedge, a 19-year-old Garner resident who lost her battle to lung cancer in 2006 while being treated at UNC. The organization’s Web site is brittanysbattle.org.
