“I am hosting this event in honor of my great aunt DeeDee who passed away from dementia three years ago,” said event organizer Olivia Raley. “She was so full of life and it was hard to watch her go through that disease. This disease has affected numerous people in my immediate community, as well, and that is why I got involved.”
This year’s special guest and entertainment are EthanAlmighty and JD Shelburne.
EthanAlmighty is a Presa Canario that won the 2022 Shelter Hero Dog and American Humane Hero Dog Award this past November in recognition of his near death experience when he was found abandoned in a parking lot weighing less that half his breed average. His award has raised tremendous awareness for animal cruelty.
JD Shelburne was born and raised in Taylorsville and is now making a name for himself in Nashville. His recent album is “Neon Hallelujah” and includes hit singles, “She Keeps Me Up Nights,” “Hometown in My headlights” and “One Less Girl.” He has also opened for legendary artists like ZZ Top, Miranda Lambert and Marty Stuart. He is currently collaborating with the Oak Ridge Boys on their recorded version of “Amazing Grace.”
