The second Key City Rhythm & Blues Festival, which benefits the United Way of Abilene, took place April 29 – May 1 at the Nelson Park Festival Gardens.

The three-day event featured live acts on Friday and Saturday evening with a Gospel brunch to follow Sunday at the TownePlace Suites/Courtyard Marriott hotel.

Bethany Ashlock, United Way’s community impact and marketing director, said the event is a unique and fun way to give back to the 25 community partner programs that United Way serves.

“Last year we brought in $26,000 and this year our goal is $50,000,” Ashlock said. “We hope ticket sales continue to increase and more people will come out so that we can give more money back.”
