Stars Set for Sizzlin’ Country Concert

Deana Carter, Diamond Rio and Darryl Worley are set to perform at the ninth annual Sizzlin’ Country fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Sara Evans hosts the May 20 event at the House of Blues in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. The event is scheduled the night before this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards. The evening will include a VIP dinner, auctions and live music performances. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation will also present its Heart of Country Award to Henry Juszkiewicz, chairman and CEO of the Gibson Guitar Corp. and Baldwin Pianos, for his humanitarian efforts. Last year’s Sizzlin’ Country event raised more than $500,000 for cystic fibrosis research and care programs. 02/27/03
