Taylor Hicks Performs at River Bend to Benefit Boys Home of Virginia

River Bend Golf and Country Club in Great Falls, Virginia, was the site of a gathering of family and friends of Perry and Tina Williams to benefit Boys Home of Virginia. Perry is a trustee of Boys Home of Virginia, and he and his wife invited a host of people to enjoy a back porch party featuring the soulful sounds of Taylor Hicks, winner of the 2006 American Idol competition.

As Taylor entertained the crowd with a mix of guitar, harmonica, and vocals, guests enjoyed a variety of BBQ, sides, and lively conversations. The venue provided a tasty array of desserts as the concert came to a close.

Perry then introduced Donnie E. Wheatley, executive director of Boys Home of Virginia. Mr. Wheatley, once a resident of Boys Home himself, talked about the organization and the benefit it offers young men who need a second chance at success. Mr. Wheatley spoke candidly about his own path to arriving at Boys Home and the opportunity it afforded him as a young man. He went on to describe the services offered by Boys Home today and the impact the program has on the lives of students who have come through its doors for over 100 years.

Boys Home is deeply grateful to Perry and Tina for introducing so many new people to the mission of Boys Home and for their generosity in hosting the event. Events like this are excellent opportunities to share the mission of Boys Home and the progress made by students in the program.
