"I’m a big supporter of our community and there was such tragic loss and I wanted to do anything that I could to help these families. It’s expected, because it’s just what we do. This whole Panhandle is that way. We support each other and we try to help each other out when we need it," said Golden Light Owner Angela Corpening.
Corpening said even though Golden Light hosted the event, she couldn’t take all the credit. The brains behind it all was local musician Jason Hodges.
"Everyone that called was willing to help, local businesses, local artists, the Golden Light and Angela gave us the bar and the staff all for free. She is giving proceeds from the restaurant," he said.
"To be able to call your friends, call people in your phone not in your email, not finding people you don’t know but calling your actual friends and making something like this happen so easily can make a difference. That’s all it's about," said Hodges.
