Admission is free but donations are accepted.

The concert features the Potters Clay Quartet from Houston, Miss., the Born Again Quartet from Byram, Miss-Tenn Trio from Vicksburg, vocalist Jack Hollingsworth from Utica and master of ceremonies Carl Hollingsworth of Byram.

The annual benefit concert began in 2004 to help raise funds for Mike Hollingsworth, Jack Hollingsworth’s son, a Warren County deputy sheriff who was injured in the line of duty. Family members saw such great success with the event that they decided to make it a tradition.

Currently, all proceeds from the benefit go to the Hollingsworth Family Law Enforcement Scholarship, which ultimately helps a deserving Hinds student attend college. The scholarship made its first award to a Hinds student in 2009.

The scholarship is dedicated to five Hollingsworth men, all serving in some capacity in the field of law enforcement. The student receiving the scholarship must be majoring in criminal justice.
