Nashville Songwriters event raises $20,000 for Healthy Learners Georgetown

Sponsored by Phillip and Rebecca Lammonds and supported by the Friends of Healthy Learners Georgetown, the Nashville Songwriters in the Round event was held this spring at the Prince George Ocean Club in Pawleys Island, South Carolina. The event, in its second year, inspired a spirit of philanthropy for the children in the Georgetown community served by Healthy Learners.

More than one hundred people attended the Nashville Songwriters in the Round 2012, and sponsors included Mr. and Mrs. Claudius Watts (presenting sponsor), Bell Legal Group, East Coast Honda/Volkswagen, Indigo Vision Center, Mr. and Mrs. John Adams, and HIA Coastal Conference Center.  Featured artists Kyle Jacobs, Shannon Whitworth, Billy Montana and local talent Phillip Lammonds provided the entertainment while sharing their songs and the stories behind them.  Food and drinks were generously provided by Chive Blossom Café (Sysco, U.S. Food, International Food), Fresh Market, Pawleys Island Wine & Spirits, and Manifesto! Wine.

The event provided Healthy Learners with a net profit of $20,000 and 100% of the funds will go directly to provide desperately needed health care services to school children in Georgetown County.

"Your support of Healthy Learners Georgetown means so much to us and will always be remembered by the student's life that it touched," said Rebecca Lammonds, Healthy Learners Georgetown coordinator.
