FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. – (submitted by Melinda Berry-Dreisbach) Another record-breaking donation for the Joseph Sams School was collected at the annual charity concert sponsored by local school choirs of the Fayette County Public School System.

The event raised $3,040, topping last year’s record by $440. This marked the sixth year that choirs from Cleveland Elementary, Inman Elementary, Fayetteville Intermediate, Bennett’s Mill Middle, Fayette Middle and Fayette County High, along with the high school’s wind ensemble, have come together to perform holiday songs at Harps Crossing Baptist Church.

Fayette County High Choral Director Richard Prouty, one of the music teachers whose idea it was to start the charity concert, says the amount raised was beyond anyone’s expectations.
