LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

It will be a party on the Muckalee Creek in Lee County this weekend.

The Flint Riverkeeper organization will host its second annual Flint River Rhythm event.

There will be two different bands, food and drinks.

All the proceeds from ticket prices will go to helping Flint Riverkeeper with its education, policy and advocacy.

The event came about in 2016 when volunteers wanted to provide a fun way to get people involved with protecting the Flint River.

"One of the goals, the aspirations of the volunteers was to highlight the Flint Riverkeeper and the fact that the organization exists as the premier watchdog for the Flint River watershed," said Jayme Smith with the organization.

Flint River Rhythm is Saturday, April 29 at 5 p.m.

It will be at the Albany Shrine Club off Lovers Lane Road in Lee County.

General admission tickets are 20 dollars, but there are VIP tickets available starting at $150.

Last year, the event grossed $8,000. This year, organizers are hoping to double that number.

There will also be a raffle for a $1,200 canoe. Raffle tickets are $10 a piece, or you can get 15 for $100.

You can bring lawn chairs and tents, but organizers say not to bring pets or coolers.

Kids 12 and younger get into the event for free.
