Midday Guest: Scott Pylant with the First Pink Ribbon Music Fest

Today's Midday guest was Scott Pylant with the First Pink Ribbon Music Fest.

The First Pink Ribbon Music Fest will be seven hours of live music from local bands to benefit breast cancer research. The event takes place October 20 from 3-10 p.m.

The event will be held and hosted by C&M Music Center and Brewskys. Eleven bands are slated for the fest, including: Jess Rousse, Blackwater, Shane Kelley, P-150, Lee Chambliss, The Remnants, One Epic Night, Hillcrest, Galen Martin, Jackson Cannery and Rec. Use.

The event was created by Scott Pylant and Adam McAdory.  Pylant lost his mother to breast cancer in 2001 when he was 10 years old.

Donations of $5 and up are required for entry into the music fest. There will also be a silent auction during the event. C&M Music will sell raffle tickets starting at $5, or five tickets for $20, for a G-S Mini Taylor Guitar until the event.

All proceeds will go to The American Cancer Society.
