GRANDVIEW - A concert to benefit Theater West Virginia raised as much as $18,000 for the group.
Although the event did not sell out, more than 800 tickets were sold at $22 a piece. The money raised will help pay for stage repairs following a harsh winter.
On Saturday night, Phil Dirt and the Dozers performed at the Grandview theater.
Officials at Theater West Virginia insist there will be a 2015 season despite past financial difficulty.
Phil Dirt and the Dozers has already confirmed a concert date of Aug. 1 next year.
