LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) – You can help a Lee County boy who has a rare illness that prevents him from spending much time outside.

11-year old Hunter Etheridge suffers from mitochondrial disease.

On Saturday, Landis Frier and the Mac George Band will perform a concert to raise money to pay for a playroom for Hunter.

The sun robs him of his energy so volunteers built a safe play environment that brings a little of the outdoors inside.

"It's going to be a celebration of the room being completed, but we are going to need more funds because there are still materials that we need to pay for. I also want to thank the entire community for their hard work and support they have shown," said Kim Etheridge, Hunter's Mother.

The Hope for Hunter concert and Silent Auction will be Saturday at seven o'clock at Darton College Cavalier Arena.

Tickets are $10.
