Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital’s first annual ‘Kick off Classic’ was held last Friday at the Elkin/Forbush high school football game.


During halftime, the Yadkin Valley United Fund board members and volunteers gathered on the field for their ceremonial start to the YVUF 2013-2014 fundraising efforts.


“The campaign has begun with a goal of $145,000 to fund 28 different charitable agencies in the Yadkin Valley,” said Missy Loving, executive director of the YVUF.


According to the YVUF website, a series of dine out locations throughout the Yadkin Valley will also pitch in the help the fund. A portion of proceeds from the sponsoring restaurants will be given to the fund.


Dine out locations are:


Mazzini’s - August 29


Fiddles Pub -September 5


Harry’s Place - September 10


Theo’s Italian - September 19


Harvest Grill - September 26


“I think getting the word out to the public about who we are and what we do is crucial this year” Loving stated at a recent meeting when announcing the YVUF will also be bringing Edwin McCain to Elkin for a concert.


The McCain concert will be held at The Liberty on November 8. Tickets for that event may be purchased through the YVUF.


In 1994, McCain recorded his first major-label album, Honor Among Thieves under the Lava Records imprint (Matchbox Twenty, Kid Rock and Jewel). His second album, Misguided Roses, spawned “I’ll Be”, a major hit single in 1998. The song is also featured on the charitable album, Live in the X Lounge, along with a live version of “Solitude”. It was also featured and included in the soundtrack of the 2004 teen flick, A Cinderella Story.
