Benefit Concert for Doug Ewing planned for Sept. 10


Come show your support for Doug and Dejon Ewing during a special benefit concert Saturday, Sept. 10 from 7-9 p.m. in the Robert Brown Theatre.

Dejon Ewing, Humanities Department instructor at Cowley College, is currently on a leave of absence from the school as she and her husband, Doug, are at Sunridge Medical Center in Scottsdale, AZ, for the next six weeks as Doug undergoes treatment for Stage 4 cancer in his adrenal glands.

The concert will feature performances from the Ewings’ daughter, Piper Leigh and her band the Smoking Section. There will also be special guest performances as every bit of the money raised will go to help the Ewings’ with their medical expenses.

There is no cost to attend the concert but donations are expected. A special account for donations has been established at Union State Bank in Arkansas City. Those interested can contact the bank at 620-442-5200.
