Brazos River Wounded Warriors Outdoors adds Taylor Hickey Band to upcoming benefit lineup

By LIBBY CLUETT

In addition to musician Stoney LaRue and his band The Arsenals, Brazos River Wounded Warrior Outdoors has added to its Feb. 2 benefit lineup the Taylor Hickey Band.

The event next Saturday is held in conjunction with the second annual BRWWO hunt, which gives about 10 wounded veterans a chance to hunt for deer and hogs over a day and a half. The BRWWO provides lodging and meals for the veterans and coordinates the weekend's activities. Funds raised at the dinner-concert will help ensure more outdoor activities are available for wounded warriors in the Palo Pinto-Parker County area.

According to BRWWO President Mitch Bradshaw, the honored wounded warriors will enter Mineral Wells from Parker County via an entourage. They are estimated to arrive around 4:15 p.m., Feb. 2, and will enter Fort Wolters under ladder trucks with crossed ladders, escorted by a large procession of American Legion and Patriot Guard bikers.

A live auction will include items such as a rifle, a vintage government-issue 1911 40-caliber pistol and guided hunt trips at various ranches. In addition, there will be various raffle items donated by businesses and individuals, including a Beast pump-up hunting blind.

The dinner and concert take place in the Palo Pinto County Livestock Association Expo building, located at 800 North Farm-to-Market Road 1821. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the Taylor Hickey Band will perform beginning around 6:15 p.m.

A limited number of tickets remain available for the dinner-dance-concert fundraiser and are available at Ace Hardware, Cole's Flowers and the Mineral Wells Area Chamber of Commerce, all located in Mineral Wells. Tickets are $75 each and include a barbeque dinner with all of the fixings, as well as all beer and soft drinks.
