MARCH 15– The family-friendly “Hee Haw” show, a benefit for the Hardin County Cancer Association, will be held at the Hardin County High School auditorium on March 17 and March 18, with a nightly pre-show beginning at 6 and the Hee Haw show starting at 6:30.
On Sunday, March 19, at 2 p.m., the seventh annual Kornfield Kounty Kountry Kids show, starring an all-children cast, will be held.
“Four cast members of Kornfield Kids are high school seniors and have grown up with Hee Haw,” said Kathy Moon, Hee Haw co-director. “They will be singing the fishbowl song this year.”
At a certain point during the show, HCCA donations are collected in a “fishbowl” passed through the audience as the special song is sung.
Moon says many of the new jokes this year, thanks to a donation from Lisa Armstrong Bevis, include some of the original jokes from the television show, which Moon says are hilarious.
Tickets are reasonable with donated money staying in Hardin County to help those with cancer who have a variety of needs.
“Last year Hardin County Cancer Association helped 113 patients,” said Moon.
Moon says financial assistance is available for each cancer patient’s individual needs, not only for gas assistance but also for things like medication, co-pays, prosthetics, Ensure nutrition drinks and more.
