Campbell Fest benefit to help family with expenses

SNYDER, TX (KCBD) -

The Snyder community is in the process of putting together Campbell Fest, a benefit concert with proceeds going to Corporal Darrell Campbell's family for medical and travel expenses while he is recovering in the hospital.

Campbell is still in serious condition at UMC's intensive care, but as of last week was able to breathe on his own after being shot in the head during a police call out on July 12th. Another Snyder officer shot and killed the suspect after a brief shootout.

On Sunday, Jamie Crowley, a close family friend, said the efforts for Campbell Fest are quickly coming together as the community comes together for the family in need.

"Turn out as far as participation and people wanting to help, all the different fundraiser's going on around town… it is just amazing," said Crowley. "It's nice to see the community actually come together."

So far Crowley and other organizers have booked 14 bands to play during the three-day music festival starting August 19th and ending Sunday the 21st at the Snyder Coliseum. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. on that Friday and will go until midnight. On Saturday doors will open around 1:30 p.m. and again end at midnight. Sunday will be all Christian bands with doors opening at 1:30 p.m. and the benefit ending at 6 p.m.

Crowley says they haven't figured out how they want to sell the tickets yet, but prices will be $20 for a weekend pass, and $25 at the door.

On Facebook alone, more than 500 people have already RSVPed, an overwhelming sight for organizers.

"I'm floored; I really am. I don't know what to say. I thought I had this little crazy idea, and it's gone from just a little thing and spread like wildfire. I'm amazed," said Crowley.

Crowley has a PayPal account set up. You can email donations to Campbell.fest@hotmail.com Those donations will be linked to a bank account set up in Campbell's name at the West Texas Savings in Snyder.

If you would like to volunteer your time, money or talent for the music fest, you can call Crowley at 325-574-4097 or Tami at 325-574-4702.
