Nick Malloy Benefit Concert Draws Full House | News
A full house and a standing ovation, the benefit concert for Nick Malloy drew in a large crowd and a lot of support. Nick was seriously hurt in a car accident in March.
"He's a really cool guy and his mom actually taught me in the 4th grade," says Amber Rains from Macon.
Nick's godfather, Bill Elder says the concert is a celebration.
WMAZ's own Chief Meteorologist Ben Jones MC'ed the event, which included live music and a silent auction. People could bid on things ranging from a cowboy hat to a date night with the Joneses.
"It means a lot to me because if someone else was in Nick's situation, he'd be the first one to help or talk to them," says older brother Brad Malloy.
The raffle raised $4,000. The money goes toward the Nick Malloy Foundation. Totals for the silent auction and the concert hadn't been tallied by late Friday night.
"To bring Nick back the first time in a good while, to drive in and see the excitement and the smile on Nick's face, it's an unbelievable feeling," says Nick's father, WMAZ's own Frank Malloy.
Since his accident, Nick has made a lot of progress in his recovery. He even rolled on stage to strum a few notes.
