Willie Concert Proceeds go to Volunteer FDs

5-9-06 - Proceeds from the Willie Nelson concert in Durant last month are now being distributed to fire departments in Bryan County.

Earth Bio-Fuels and the Choctaw Nation sponsored the April concert that raised $200,000 in ticket sales. The Durant FD along with 17 volunteer departments are splitting the donation. That works out to about $6,000 each, which is nearly twice as much as they get from the state in a year.
