Shortly after Newnan, Georgia was hit by an EF4 Tornado in March, Newnan native Alan Jackson and his team began putting together a benefit to assist those impacted. Proceeds from "Where I Come From: Tornado Benefit Featuring Alan Jackson" will benefit the Coweta Community Foundation’s Tornado Relief Fund. Despite the event’s sellout, donation opportunities remain and can be made to the fund via the Foundation’s website. You will also be able to watch the show and donate on Alan Jackson's Facebook page Saturday.
