Truck drivers are coming together to raise awareness and money for victims of Hurricane Harvey by hosting an evening of live Facebook musical performances.
Trucker George Parker, of The George & Wendy Show, and truck driver and singer Bill Weaver partnered to create the “Truckers for Texas” Facebook event to raise money for Hurricane Harvey survivors. On Saturday a series of live performances will be played on the page from 5:15 p.m. to midnight Eastern. Donations can be made directly through the Facebook page to the Red Cross.
Weaver says they chose the Red Cross to donate to because they were working under short notice and wanted to make sure the money was going to the right place. Money donated through the Facebook page goes directly to the Red Cross.
The performance schedule includes:
- 5:15 p.m. ET: Taylor Barker
- 6 p.m. ET: Paul Marhoefer
- 7 p.m. ET: Brad James
- 8 p.m. ET: Bill Weaver
- 9 p.m. ET: Tony Justice
