The annual event, which supports the I Can Read! children's literacy program of Carbondale, paid tribute to longtime local music legends, Sharon Clark and Martin “Big Larry” Allbritton, who performed at the event in past years. Both musicians passed away in 2017. The event featured a dinner, a silent auction and music by Rip Lee Pryor, King Juba and The Phonics.
