Concert to benefit local woman undergoing colon cancer


The First United Methodist Church of Granbury is hosting a free concert and fundraiser Friday, Oct. 6. The gospel show titled Time for Love will feature Ransomed 180 and Shane Brooks as entertainment.

The performers donated their time to the event. There will be a bake sale at the concert and a silent auction. There is no fee to attend but donations will be accepted.

The event was organized as a fundraiser for Tonya Cline, a Granbury single mother who is undergoing two different surgeries for colon cancer. Cline has been unable to work because of her illness and her medical leave unemployment is not enough to cover her expenses.

Cline is a 1989 graduate of Granbury High School. Three of her four sons are graduates of Granbury High School as well and her youngest son is a current student in Granbury schools.

A Time for Love was organized when Hood County residents Sandra Head and Patsy Parr joined forces to try to alleviate at least some of Cline’s concerns. Please reach out to Parr at 817-578-9001 with questions or if you have items for the silent auction.
