It was a night of celebration, a night of giving.

Some of the county's best performers turned out last night at Arnoldsburg, for a special benefit for infant Jordan Falls, son of Jeremy Falls and Lisa Atkinson.

Little Jordan has been facing a major health crisis in the first few months of his life, said grandfather Rick Falls. His wait on a liver transplant list was short, said Rick. "By the grace of God and thousands of prayers, a liver was found within four days," he said. "That was unheard of."

Jordan is progressing well in a Cincinnati, Ohio Hospital.

The McBrides of Grantsville, Buck McCumbers and Company of Parkersburg and the Level Land Band of Columbus, Ohio and several other groups performed before a large crowd at the Arnoldsburg Community Building last night.

The members of the Falls family are well-known to county musicians. "It was heartwarming to see the support given them for the child," said a benefit attendee. "This is what is wonderful about living in Calhoun."

A large dinner was served to those attending, and items were raffled. Money raised by the benefit will help with family expenses, including traveling back and forth to the hospital.
