$8,000 final tally for Big Day at the Lake concert

Oct. 19. ​A total of $8,000 was raised for ​Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Carolinas at a Big Day at the Lake lakefront concert put on by Stormin’ Norman LKN in September.

​More than 75 boats ​anchored off a home in Island Forest for a two-hour rock concert. Big Day at the Lake supports BBBS, a non-profit which ​provides mentors for children who are at risk.

The classic rock band performed facing Lake Norman in the back of a home in the Island Forest neighborhood with boaters socially distancing​.​
