For months, Troy Wilson has been working on a "Rock For Wishes" fund-raiser to collect money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
He's got five bands coming to the May 9 event and plans for an outdoor pig roast, too.
But the corporate sponsor that had promised to pony up $1,500 to cover the costs has backed out, Wilson said, so he's "feeling desperate."
He said he's looking for tax-deductible donations to ensure that the event is a success.
Slated to begin at 4 p.m. Saturday, May 9 at Bleacher's Sports Bar and Restaurant on Middle Street, the money raised will go to help the foundation make dreams come true for sick children who may face a bleak future.
