7th annual Weaver's Weekend to take place this Saturday

Weaver’s Weekend is an annual fundraising event for the Friends of Mike Weaver Foundation, a foundation that supports the memory of Mike Weaver.

Weaver, who died at the age of 20 in an altercation, is now remembered with a scholarship in his name. Weaver was passionate about music and baseball. The Mike Weaver Award is a scholarship that recognizes a 12 year old at Vine-Ingle Little League who exemplifies good sportsmanship and love for the game, as Weaver did.

“What started out as Mike’s old friends casually getting together for a fun night has turned into a weekend of events,” said Stephan Adams, board member.

The weekend includes a Friends and Family Dinner, Weaver’s Cup Golf Tournament, VIP party for sponsors, and the main event consisting of a night of fun and music. The concert will be hosted at Crazy Bull in downtown Macon on August 23, with The Dirty Guv’nahs headlining, with the Sonia Leigh and Gringo Grande performing as well.

The weekend’s events take place Saturday, Aug. 23. The doors open at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are 15 dollars in advance or 20 dollars at the door. Proceeds benefit the Mike Weaver Foundation.
