Fest for West in Bryan Raises $20,000+

Some big bucks were raised yesterday to help those in need in West.

In less than two weeks, the Downtown Bryan Association helped organize the "Fest for West" event on Main Street.

According to organizers, $20,495 were raised through the event, which featured 16 musical acts at the Palace Theater and the Grand Stafford Theater. Brandon Rhyder headlined the show.

A silent auction was held, and t-shirts and barbecue were sold, with all the proceeds going towards the victims of the West Fertilizer Plant explosion last month.
