Banner Elk will host a music festival this weekend that officials hope will become an annual event.
Banner Elk residents have come together to organize the event to help a community member who is in need of a kidney transplant. Lynne Lear, who is helping organize the event, said the woman who needs the transplant doesn’t know the fundraiser is being held. Lear said she is at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center on full-time dialysis.
*UPDATE Friday morning: Organizers have decided NOT to allow alcohol at Sunday's event.
