If you’ve ever been in Georgia on a Friday night, then you’ve probably noticed that folks down thataway consider ball games something akin to prayer meetings and mom’s apple pie!
So, when a group of local leaders in Bill’s adopted hometown of Commerce, GA wanted to present a check on behalf of Whisperin’ Bill Anderson – to benefit the Bill Anderson Scholarship Fund – there was only one fitting place to do it: AT THE BALL GAME!
And yes, they are seen here on “Center Court” at Commerce High School holding a mock check for $16,100.00, which is the total amount raised by Anderson’s 2013 Homecoming Concert with all proceeds going to benefit the Bill Anderson Scholarship Fund.
Each year during the Honors Day Program at Commerce High School, a $1,000 scholarship is presented to one CHS student as the winner of the Bill Anderson Scholarship for that current school year. Each winner is selected from applicants who have expressed an interest in furthering their education in the Performing Arts.
