Wakefest After Dark at Chehaw
After a day of competition on the water, Wakefest organizers will be staging the first Wakefest After Dark Event Saturday, July 19 at Chehaw. Live music, featuring Marty Evans and Caylee Anna, begins at 7 p.m. and tickets are $10. 
All proceeds generated at this year’s Wakefest GA will benefit local resident, Ty Christian West, who was born with neuromuscular scoliosis and Down Syndrome. As West grows up, his medical needs will increase, so organizers are hoping Wakefest and Wakefest After Dark will provide some assistance to West and his family.
Chehaw is excited to be a part of hosting the inaugural Wakefest After Dark concert and staff is hopeful that the event will generate additional money for the cause. “We are lucky to live in such a supportive community,” said Morgan Burnette, PR Coordinator. “Chehaw has benefitted from the public’s support and generosity over the years, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to be able to give back to a local family in need.” 
Anyone wanting more information about Wakefest or interested in participating in the competition can pre-register at the group’s website www.wakefestga.com or contact Adam Gilbert at (229) 886-6666.
