Organizers looking to hold benefit
concert for injured Snyder officer
Organizers are developing plans for a weekend con-
cert to benefit a Snyder Police Officer who was shot in
the head last week.
Organizer Jamie Crowley says she's booked the
Snyder Coliseum for the weekend of August 19-21 in an
effort to raise money for Darrell Campbell. Campbell
has a long road to recovery ahead of him. He remains
in critical condition.
Crowley is now trying to spark interest and raise
funds on the social media website Facebook.
'We need lots of help with fundraising, finding ven-
dors and help finding those willing to sponsor. Money
raised will be used to purchase tshirts, pay for sour
equipment and anything pertaining to the setup of the
benefit concert," said Crowley via Facebook. "All pro-
ceeds will go to the Campbell family."
Crowley reports she's working with a local radio sta-
tion to book bands for the event.
