Hundreds of area music aficianados came out to support local organizations and charities during the 15th annual Athens Community Music Festival, held Aug. 10.
The event, which featured more than 30 acts performing at The Union, Jackie O's Pub & Brewery, Casa Cantina, Smiling Skull Saloon and Donkey Coffee, raised funds for ARTS/West, The Gathering Place and the Bryan Winland Memorial Art & Music Scholarship.
"I'm a native Athenian, and it truly is a great feeling to see everyone pull together to make such a fun end-of-summer event possible," said festival founder/organizer Scott Winland. "It feels good to be a part of making something like this happen each year."
