MUHLENBERG CO., KY (WFIE) -

Many in Muhlenberg County continue to show their support for the Watson family.

A benefit concert is in the works.

Jeff Milam, a member of a local band, says the concert is scheduled for Friday, February 7 beginning at 7:00 p.m. It'll be held at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Post in Central City.
   
Milam says he has never organized a benefit like this so quickly, but he say everyone is on board and willing to help.

All money raised will go directly to Chad and Kylie Watson.

"At the door, it's going to be a $5 admission fee. We are hoping that we will get plenty of donations during the show. We will have tip jars and stuff out to take donations in. Federal Order of Eagles is going to make a donation," Milam tells 14 News.

He says as soon as the concert is over, he is going to start planning another one for a younger audience.
