SUMNER, GA (WALB) -

Family and friends gathered at Sumner City Hall, formerly Sumner High School in Worth County, to support a man whose suffering from a rare lung disease.

For a donation,  folks could come and listen to live music featuring local musical talent. All the proceeds will help Eddie Etheridge, who is in need of a double lung transplant, fund his medical expenses.

 Etheridge is on the double lung transplant list in Florida, and receiving treatment at the Mayo Clinic.
