07-06-11-extreme-home-makeover-lolog.jpgExtreme Makeover: Home Edition, the Emmy-award winning hit reality show on ABC, is coming to Fayetteville, N.C. to surprise one very deserving family and they have chosen Blue Ridge Log Cabins to lead the charge in building a new home. The identity of the family receiving a complete home rebuild from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will be revealed on Thursday, July 14 during Extreme’s, “Good Morning!” wake up call.

The Fayetteville Dogwood Festival is proud to be one of the hosts of a very special project to benefit the deserving recipients. Blue Ridge Log Cabins, R. A. Jeffrey’s — a Bud Light distributor and the Fayetteville Dogwood Festival, together will produce Heroes, Hearts and Hardhats Music Festival on Sunday July, 17th in Festival Park. All of the proceeds from this all day event will be donated to the family build fund.

The festival includes food vendors, face painting stations, inflatable waterslides, cold Bud Light — and of course free entertainment! Donations will be accepted throughout the day, and proceeds from the food vendors, waterslides, soda, water and beer sales will be presented to the family.

The USO of North Carolina will also be on hand with their bus and N.C. Mobile unit collecting non perishable food and travel-sized personal hygiene items.

The day’s activities begin at noon and run through 9 p.m. Entertainment will include a lineup of performers like Da Throw Back Band, a festive 70’s style show band, Jamie Tate, a North Carolina native with fun tunes like “I’m One Beer Away From Loving You”, and of course a few other surprises. The event headliner will be country artist Josh Thompson.

Josh Thompson is a songwriter and performer from Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Thompson’s blue collar lifestyle can be found in many of the songs he has written, which includes the title track of Jason Michael Carroll’s current album Growing Up is Getting Old. Following his Top 20 Debut “Beer On The Table” his second single and album’s title track “Way Out Here” is already in the Top 40.

We invite you to join us at the Heroes, Hearts and Hardhats Music Festival presented by Bud Light to make a difference in the lives of the deserving recipients.
